What we do
Khulisa works with young people in schools, prisons and in the community. We help them to understand and tackle the root-cause of their violent and anti-social behaviours. We do this by placing wellbeing at the heart of rehabilitation; we provide intensive therapeutic support to help young people build self-awareness and emotional resilience.Learn more

'Face It' is Khulisa's behaviour change and personal development programme, designed for pupils in schools and Pupil Referral Units. The programme is specifically designed for young people who are at risk of offending or exclusion and for those at risk of becoming involved in gangs. The programme methodology is adapted from our Silence the Violence (STV) programme; it builds self-awareness and encourages pupils to reflect on the root causes and triggers of their disruptive or challenging behaviour. The programme equips young people with alternative ways to deal with their emotions. Each programme is tailored to the specific needs of the participants and all elements of the course are delivered by trained drama therapists.
'Silence the Violence' is a violence reduction programme delivered in prisons and youth offending institutions across the UK. We believe that in order to bring about long-term positive behaviour change, it's critical that prisoners are able to manage and understand their emotions and develop healthy relationships with others. We support rehabilitation and reintegration into the community by helping prisoners to develop emotional resilience, positive wellbeing and good mental health.
In the Community
'My Path' is an intensive wellbeing programme delivered in community settings for young people tackling homelessness, addiction, leaving prison, poverty, poor mental health or a combination of challenges. It was developed from Khulisa’s original programme, 'Silence The Violence', which supports prisoners in their rehabilitation journey. The programme is led by therapeutically-trained facilitators who support participants to better understand and manage their emotions, change behaviour and increase the likelihood of sustained engagement with support services
