Who are we
We’re Khulisa, a national charity dedicated to helping people live healthier, crime-free lives. Khulisa is a registered charity (no. 1120562) and company limited by guarantee (no. 6210432). The registered address is Khulisa, 32 Cubitt Street, London, WC1X 0LR.
Khulisa – meaning ‘to nurture’ in Zulu – represents our South African heritage and our core belief that everyone, no matter their background, has the capacity to learn and grow in a safe, nurturing environment. We believe that schools, prisons, communities and government need a much more joined-up approach to help people escape the cycle of social exclusion and crime, which is why we are Britain’s only charity offering behaviour change programmes, training and research services at all key stages of the criminal justice system, giving us an unrivalled breadth of expertise of what works to reduce crime.
