For Professionals

JAN Trust offers training to a range of other organisations and service providers on a number of issues including Preventing Radicalisation and Extremism, Hate Crime (focusing on hate crimes and hate incidents targeted at women), Forced Marriage and FGM. We use the knowledge and expertise we have developed over nearly 30 years of working at the grassroots level with women and young people from Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic and Refugee (BAMER) communities, to deliver effective and high quality training that makes a real difference to how professionals respond to these issues. We provide an insight into how a community organisation engages with BAMER communities and addresses highly sensitive and highly complex issues such as Forced Marriage and FGM, using cases we have dealt with as examples to aid understanding. We aim to develop the cultural awareness and sensitivity of the professionals we train so that they can recognise and understand the differences between cultures and respond accordingly. We also work with practitioners across London and the UK on safeguarding against extremism.

We also provide policy advice to organisations and various agencies.

Our training packages can be tailored to suit your organisation’s needs.
