• In 2003, we created a safe space for young people in the form of its youth centre that is free of charge, provides modern facilities, allows for access to information, personal development opportunities and is facilitated by skilled engagement officers. The youth centre has an average of 3000 members annually.

  • Held the first Ramadan Project in 2004 where young people found themselves involved in anti-social behaviour, and by inviting them to relax and socialise, we successfully kept them from causing further trouble on the streets.

  • In 2006, the Cumbria Project united young people from our local community, some of whom were involved in anti-social behaviour and gangs, with members of statutory bodies such as the Police and the Army. The project provided an excellent way to break down social barriers, giving community members and statutory bodies a greater understanding of each other’s needs and barriers.

  • Positively Empowering And Realising Limitless Strengths (PEARLS) was created in 2007 to create a girls and women friendly environment that focused on female driven issues and providing the appropriate support.

  • We launched our Outreach & Engagement Programme in 2008 with officers frequenting hard to reach areas to reduce violence and community tension.

  • Since 2012, we have run over 15 Young Leaders Programmes across the UK. The Young Leaders Programme was designed to teach young people the skills and knowledge to help them identify and extinguish conflicts and radical behaviours in their communities. 

  •  In 2014, we launched the #notinmyname campaign which went viral and reached over 300 million people worldwide. The campaign was an opportunity for the world to stand united and condemn the actions of terrorist groups in the name of religion.

  • In 2016, we hosted our largest Young Leaders Programme graduation ceremony in central London that was attended by over 400 young leaders and guests from around London, Cardiff, Birmingham, Brighton, Crawley and Slough.

  • In 2016, we were awarded the Charity Award in the category of Children and Youth for our Young Leaders Programme, receiving national praise from across the charity sector.
