JAN Trust is a multi-award winning charity empowering and providing leadership for women in order to create positive and active citizens of society.
Our programmes tackle root causes of marginalisation leading to hardship and fractured communities. We rebuild lives piece by piece, bringing benefits to women, young people and the wider community.
"Social inclusion and the empowerment of young people and women from all backgrounds are essential to solving the root causes of radicalisation, extremism and hate crime. Your projects demonstrate the importance of the work you and other organisations do to address these issues that help the most vulnerable in our country."Rt Hon Theresa May MP and Prime Minister
"I personally see this as an excellent example of the importance of community-led schemes in tackling extremism online; thank you for your work."Rt Hon. David Cameron Former MP and Prime Minister
"I appreciate that this project has taken a direct approach to provide women with the relevant tools, knowledge and support to positively engage with young people on their online interactions. Your project is playing an important role in helping build their capability to safeguard children and young people."Baroness Joanna Shields, Minister for Internet Safety and Security
"The wide ranging work of your organisation that you describe to tackle extremism in communities, and particularly among Muslim women, is commendable."Clive Betts MP, Chair of the Communities and Local Government Committee
"I was struck by your reference to enabling vulnerable communities to feel part of society rather than apart from it. It is salutary to consider the experiences that must have led the Trust to describe its work in such terms."Justine Greening MP, Former Secretary of State for Education and Minister for Women and Equalities
"The Metropolitan Police Service is working closely with JAN Trust. The work that JAN Trust carries out with women and young people is a great contribution to community safety."Metropolitan Police Service
