Why choose us?

Things are changing all the time for all of us, but one thing you can be sure of is that you can still book training with Communities Inc.

As long as it continues to fit within government restrictions, we can still deliver our workshops face-to-face (in a fully COVID-19 compliant way - see below) or we can offer online training instead.

Read on to find out why you should choose us, how we're ensuring our sessions are COVID-compliant and what topics our workshops address.
Our facilitators have years of experience in challenging and addressing hate, as well as in delivering workshops, talks and community dialogues.
We offer high-quality, informative training in a choice of formats. All workshops also come with free resources which have been researched, designed and developed by us, with the aim of supporting your learning.
As long as it fits within government restrictions, we can still deliver our workshops face-to-face (n a fully COVID-19 compliant way) or we can offer online training instead. Each workshop usually takes 2 hours but this can be adapted to suit your needs. We also include lunch where required.

What makes our training COVID-compliant?

When it fits within government guidelines to run face-to-face workshops, we are implementing a series of measures to ensure that our training sessions are COVID-19 compliant. 

These measures include:
- Making hand sanitising gel and masks available to all participants.
- Using large venues and restricting the numbers of attendees, to enable social distancing.
- Providing individual, pre-packed lunches* instead of buffet-style refreshments.

* Where lunch has been requested in advance.

What training do we offer?

Hate Crime Awareness Training

With an ever-increasing number of hate incidents taking place in the UK, it is crucial that we all recognise what an act of hate is and how we can eradicate the issue.

This workshop will cover:

- What constitutes an act of hate
- The impact hate has on individuals and communities
- How to report hate
- Support services available for victims

Bystander Intervention Training

Did you know that you are less likely to help someone in need when there are other people around you? This phenomenon is called the bystander effect. It means that you are also less likely to intervene when people are experiencing hate.

Everyone deserves to feel safe and our bystander intervention training programme - Stand by Me - will empower you to take action.

This workshop will cover:
- What counts as an act of hate.
- Why it's so important to report it.
- What stops you from intervening if you witness hate.

- Safe indirect interventions you can make to help others.
- Options for safe direct interventions you can make when appropriate.

Far-Right Awareness Training

The far-right has been using both people's fears around COVID-19 and the issues addressed in the Black Lives Matter protests, to further their own agenda. They might well have influenced you without you knowing it.

This training looks at the rise of the Far-Right and what you can do to tackle the issue.

The workshop will cover:
- Who represents the Far-Right.
- How they use people’s fears to spread their messages.
- What part the media and social media play in reinforcing these views.
- How they recruit and expand their networks.
- What you can do to change the narrative.
