How safe from hate are young people? Is your school ready for new online threat?

“right-wing extremism is reaching into our communities through sophisticated propaganda and subversive strategies creating and exploiting vulnerabilities … I don’t think the change and growth in extreme right-wing terrorist threat has been explained or described well enough” – Former Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley (MET Police)


HOPE not hate is the world’s leading authority on the extreme right and are giving Safeguarding Leads the opportunity to learn from their extensive research built up over decades.


Children are growing up with an ever-growing interwoven digital and “real” life. The digital world offers a whole host of exciting possibilities, but these are unfortunately being exploited by extreme hate groups.


HOPE not hate is putting on a series of one-day conference across the country aimed at Safeguarding Leads, teacher and youth workers to equip them with the knowledge and skills to keep their young people safe from this new and growing threat.  This will be of particular interest for Schools of Sanctuary.



What to expect from the one-day conference:

·         A chance to learn from Dr Joe Mulhall, a leading academic expert on the alt-right

·         Advice and guidance on what to do if you suspect a young person has come into contact

·         How to spot fake news

·         Leading research publications worth £30 of how the current extreme right operates and what to look out for in schools.

Benefits of attending:

·         Gain knowledge and confidence

·         Be inspired by meeting people who are leaders in this field.

·         Build your network by meeting other DSLs
