Osmani Trust has a long-standing and award-winning track record of delivering early intervention in schools and in the community for those at risk of joining gangs, crime, violence, and exploitation.
The School Resilience Programme (SRP) is an early intervention programme that aims to change the attitude of at-risk pupils toward education and to build resilience to violence, crime, and exploitation. Research shows a strong link between school exclusion and later entry into the Criminal Justice System which the SRP aims to change through early intervention.

The programme aims is to:
- Improve attitudes and outlook on life
- Improve pupils decision-making skills and to make positive choices
- Increase retention and engagement in school by raising aspirations
