About us

Basis are the social issues specialists. We design and deliver specialist training on the social issues affecting our communities today.

Our aim is to promote understanding of relevant social issues and empower professionals, young people and communities through high-quality, holistic training. Our courses are created to meet each individual organisation’s needs and are CPD®-certified. Experienced practitioners who are also passionate and skilled trainers deliver our courses with the latest techniques and styles, to ensure an interactive and engaging learning experience.

Basis is part of Basis Yorkshire (formerly Genesis Leeds)- a long standing Yorkshire based charity with a key focus on child sexual exploitation and adult sex work. For many years we have informally delivered training to professionals and shared our expertise in order to raise awareness with young people. Developing this area of our work, we officially launched Basis in 2012 as a specialist training organisation.

Being part of a charity means all our income contributes towards better outcomes for   female sexworkers and victims of child sexual exploitation (CSE).  Our heritage and grassroots work provides a unique foundation for providing effective and relevant training within current social issues.

Based in Leeds, West Yorkshire, we deliver training nationally, bringing our specialist knowledge and experience to organisations all over the UK. Our roots in a vibrant, cosmopolitan city allow us to understand, first hand, the challenges that both inner-city and leafy-lane communities face. This diversity provides our team with an in-depth understanding of how social issues affect populations differently.
