Trainer: Tanayah Sam : presented by Chinara Enterprises Ltd

Tanayah Sam is an entrepreneur, author and urban youth specialist who has a broad, multi-perspective experience of the British Criminal Justice system.

Tanayah is a former member of one of Birmingham’s most notorious gangs and a reformed offender.

Upon his release from prison, Tanayah dedicated the remainder of his life to helping as many people as possible who are on the cusp of, or directly involved in Gang Labelled Offending, to turn their lives around.

As a result of his tireless work, Tanayah has presented to over 20,000 people to pursue positive, constructive lifestyles in secondary education, employment, training, or further education.

His transformation has led him to working in 16 jails across England and Wales. Tanayah became a key holder in most of the 16 jails and some were jails in which he had previously served time. His wealth of experience on both sides of the fence has given him the skills to be one of the country’s leading experts on Gang Labelled Offending and Criminal Exploitation.

Tanayah has delivered CPD to civil servants and practitioners on Child Criminal Exploitation, Gangs, Youth Violence and Social Media, and they continue to deliver the training nationwide.

​TSA Sports and Education C.I.C was formed by Tanayah as a non-profit organisation that supports the development of young people through the medium of sports and education. As well as achieving national prominence, Taniyah’s work has received international recognition.
