It is widely accepted that ethic minority groups, particularly Muslim communities, suffer from negative stereotyping in mainstream media. A number of reports and studies indicate that this negative coverage has a damaging and measurable impact on these communities, causing disaffection among young Muslims and contributing to the process of radicalisation.
The Preventing Violent Extremism (PVE) action plan launched by the Home Office in 2007 underlined the urgent need to counteract this negative media stereotyping by developing media relations capacity within Muslim communities.
What we offer

If you are a Muslim community group that needs to enhance media skills within its membership, we are here to help.
We provide bespoke training packages tailored to your needs.
