When designing a disengagement or deradicalisation programme, there needs to be careful consideration of the organisation and/or individual(s) delivering the programme and how much they are trusted or distrusted by the individuals and communities the programme is designed for. The trusted individuals and organisations will potentially differ by location, therefore, there needs to also be the requisite local knowledge when designing and implementing the programmes, and time spent developing the trust which will enable the successful application of the programme(s).
