We are committed to helping organisations and professionals develop their practice to better support BAME men.

We offer a 3-hour training seminar for organisations engaging BAME men (not only survivors). The session aims to help organisations build ‘legitimacy’ – those outward signs and practices that demonstrate that you have:

a) An understanding of racist structural inequalities and violent institutional practices (e.g. white supremacy), and a commitment to dismantling them,

b) An understanding of, and a commitment to learning about the cultural circumstances that silence BAME communities

c) A commitment to anti-oppressive practice – facing prejudice can be re-traumatising

The session will include:

  • BAME men and hyper-masculinity
  • Structural racism: the barrier to help-seeking
  • The Biraderi system (clan loyalty) and how it can prevent disclosure
  • Jinn – the role of the supernatural – Cultural and religious belief and the mistrust of ‘western’ models of mental health
  • LGBTQ and Asian identities
  • Honour Based Abuse and Forced Marriage
  • Risk indicators
  • Gaining Legitimacy
  • Engaging and supporting BAME male survivors (and their families) post disclosure

We’re continuing to develop as a training provider and now offer the following, in addition to the training above:

  • Incels, Misogyny and the Online Hate of Women (Masculinities and Extremism)
  • Jinn Possession and Spiritual Abuse
  • Men, Honour-Based Abuse and Forced Marriage
