Encompass: The Daniel Braden Reconciliation Trust

Set up in memory of Daniel Braden, who was killed in the Bali terrorist bombings of 2002, Encompass aims to cultivate a global network of active, confident and motivated young people who are working across divides of faith, culture and ideology to combat the rise in global extremism.

Since 2003, Encompass has actively engaged with over 1,200 young people from six countries including Israel, the Palestinian Territories, the UK, the USA, Pakistan and Indonesia. We have two main areas of focus to our work: The international Journey of Understanding and the UK programme.

The Journey of Understanding takes place in an outdoor centre in Wales. The nine day programme includes outward bound team building activities followed by challenging indoor workshops on topics such as identity, community, conflict and stereotype. Participants are then supported and mentored to initiate their own projects back in their communities. The UK programme is a condensed, two day version of the Journey of Understanding aimed at diverse and marginalised young people living in the UK.
