Social development has entered a phase where global needs are just as important as local solutions. Emergence of the Asian Tigers and BRICS shows that the dominant view of the ‘developed north’ and ‘poor south’ fails to acknowledge the constructive potential of a reverse model.
We believe that Khulisa brings new dynamism to north-south relations, with a unique model of social solutions. Programmes tested in the extremely fragile and challenging social/financial environment in South Africa have provided an innovative and effective solution to addressing crime and violence here in the UK.
Khulisa is a national charity registered in England and Wales and a Company Limited by Guarantee. Our main office is in North London, with staff also based remotely in Dorset & Hampshire and in Greater Manchester. We have a roster of highly trained freelance programme leaders in with reach to many other parts of the UK.
Khulisa began its programmes in 2009 and has since worked at HMPs Forest Bank, Parc, Feltham, Portland, Isis & Cookham Wood, schools and PRUs in London and Sheffield and several London communities. Key partners have included the Home Office’s Tackling Knives Action Programme, Sodexo Justice Services, G4S Care & Justice Services, The Prince's Trust, Leap Confronting Conflict, Catalyst in Communities and High Trees Community Development Trust. We have also conducted trainings for the National School of Government, Barclays Bank, Common Purpose, the Prisoner Advice & Care Trust, the Young Foundation, police, YOT and probation officers, teachers and youth workers.
Khulisa is an Advisor to the Centre for Justice Innovation, a Centre for Social Justice Alliance member, Board member on the 99% Campaign and Ambassador for Make Justice Work.
We are an independent arm of Khulisa Social Solutions, one of the leading providers of diversion, offender rehabilitation and restorative justice interventions in South Africa.
