Encompass aims to build trust, opportunities and community cohesion.

Encompass works with young people from five countries to enable dialogue, community cohesion and opportunities to engage in life-changing community projects. We run international and UK programmes that challenge stereotype and build trust between diverse communities. We tackle the factors that can lead to isolation and hate crime and act as a catalyst for long term change.

I feel that because the family of Daniel Braden have put so much heart into this it's done with passion." youth worker
