The Salam Project is a group of youth workers who care passionately about young people and helping them to live their best lives. We believe the most effective way to do that is by challenging extremist views, promoting positive values and giving youth the skills to get back into work.
We work with African and Caribbean communities in London and Manchester, helping them to stand up to gang crime, extremism and radicalisation. We make a difference because we understand the issues – and we really care. Our people include gang prevention workers and extremism and radicalisation intervention workers.
We want to empower the youth in our communities to achieve more than they thought they could and help those who have taken a wrong turn to get a second chance.
