Supporting Affected Families from Extremism
|Product||Supporting families of individuals who have been involved in acts of terrorism, or espouse the views of extremist groups/ideologies|
Supporting Affected Families from Extremism (SAFE) is a project established by Faith Matters which provides support to families of individuals who have been directly involved in acts of terrorism, or who are influenced by and espouse the views of extremist groups/ideology of any kind.
SAFE was established in 2017 and is led by Micheal Evans, whose brother Thomas Evans was killed in Kenya in 2015 whilst fighting alongside the Salafi jihadist group al-Shabaab. Micheal and his mother, Sally Evans, were the subject of a 2015 Channel 4 documentary entitled My Son the Jihadi.
The scheme aims to give parents of affected family members advice that is independent from both their communities and government. In regard to Islamist extremism, it will offer theological support whereby parents, and potentially their affected child, are invited to speak with imams who have experience in talking to radicalised children. This has the intention of providing a world view that challenges their way of thinking through the use of Islamic theological alternatives.
