Youth against Violent Extremism Project

Race Equality First has run counter radicalisation projects for young people since 2008. Our recent initiative which ended in March 2017 was the Youth against Violent Extremism Project which enabled Muslims to take the lead to prevent radicalisation and extremism committed in the name of Islam. The project was an opportunity for Muslims, especially young people, to dispel misconceptions about Islam, promote tolerance and take a lead in safeguarding their own communities from radicalisation. The project ran the following activities and training sessions across Cardiff:

Cyber Safety Workshops

In schools, colleges & universities exploring radicalisation via internet & how to spot this.
