"This book is a panacea for the intractable dysfunction in the African Caribbean community. I know this will not be the only solution but it definitely fills a vacuum."

Training and Development

Margaret really opened our eyes to the mindsets of today's youth on the streets.

 

Beyond telling my story, how can I help you?

 

We believe that the change the society needs starts with the individual, you. Margaret Bankole delivers training ranging from half-day awareness raising to two and three-day professional development retreats. 

 

We offer practical skills courses for parents who are worried or have children that have been affected by gun and knife violence. 

 

The professionals we train may encounter gang-affected young people in their day-to-day lives, so they are more able and confident to offer support to parents and young people. 

 

We are also working in prisons to offer offenders confidence to help change behaviour and thinking towards criminal activity.

 

 

HEALTHY FAMILIES FIRST

WORKING IN PRISONS

One-day Practical Skills Course equipping men and women to reintegrate within society
