Our interventions help individuals deal with and overcome issues that make them vulnerable to extremist ideologies. It provides a safe and regular space for individuals to discuss and explore alternative perspectives. We have a proven track record of working with those considered to be 'high risk' individuals within the UK.

Our mentors are there to understand the issues and put them into context, while empowering and providing the tools to make better decisions. For interventions to be effective it is important to develop a relationship that is based on mutual trust and respect.

Our interventions allow individuals to:

  • Gain a better understanding of themselves and feel more confident
  • Gain a better understanding of their religion
  • Understand their own vulnerabilities  
  • Identify and understand those who capitalise on the vulnerable
  • Understand how to deal with real life issues
  • Cope with relationship breakdowns
  • Develop a better understanding of other peoples point of view

In most cases it takes a number of sessions before an intervention starts to make a difference and a regular commitment is required to achieve a sustainable change.

Case Study 

After being handed down a seven year sentence for terrorist related activities, Mr A was released from prison. He was introduced to our organisation to facilitate his reintegration back into society. Together with Mr A we worked to rehabilitate and transform him into a functioning member within his community.

" My offence meant that i was treated badly in prison. On release i found it very difficult to adjust. With the thought of having a conviction for terrorism, I knew that i would never get a job. I met with ACF and we discussed how they could help me find employment and become part of society again. ACF increased my employability chances by building my confidence and being there when i was rejected. I now have a job, a home and a wife."
