"Supporting and empowering families to combat radicalisation"
How we can help
We can help you to make better sense of what’s happening in your life – all you need to do is pick up the phone or email.
If you have concerns or worries about a son or daughter or a loved one and are unable to distinguish the signs and symptoms of possible radicalisation, Families for Life is here to help.
We can guide you as a helping hand through what may be one of the most complex and frightening experiences of your life. Being sensitive to your individual and family values and circumstances, we will work with you to build upon your own strengths and existing relationships to meet the challenges being faced by you and your family.
Family counselling support may be considered the most innovative approach that deals with the potential threat posed by extremist groups. Early intervention and support for families is therefore essential and can take place at any part of the radicalisation process. We can assist parents and siblings from the very first signs of growing extremism, all the way through to while an individual is engaged in extremist activities or when the individual is engaging in a rehabilitation or reintegration program. In its earliest stages, family support can be targeted towards parents with individuals at risk, by talking about their anxieties and creating an open atmosphere in which their relative can talk and discuss extremist ideas and in which positive alternatives can be provided
At Families for Life we offer counselling services by fully qualified counsellors, to assist you and better equip you in understanding the radicalisation process and what may be happening to the person you love and how you can help.
