Who We Help

The Foundation works nationally to support those affected by terrorism and violent conflict. Covering prevention, resolution and response, our work brings us into contact with a wide range of people, ranging from young people susceptible to extremism, women in diverse communities, veterans of conflict and their families as well as survivors and witnesses to acts of terrorism or violent conflict.

Every year, the Foundation also supports police, ambulance and fire and rescue personnel, many of whom are traumatised by what they have witnessed while undertaking their professional duties on behalf of their communities.
