What is Prevent?
Prevent is about stopping people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorist activities.
The 3 objectives of Prevent were introduced in June 2011 which aim to challenge terrorism and the risk of radicalisation:
Challenging terrorist ideology by working closely with local and national partners and communities. Utilising social and non mainstream media to introduce counter narratives.
Supporting and safeguarding vulnerable young people and adults at risk of radicalisation.
Ensure schools and colleges are equipped with the appropriate skills to identify Prevent related risks. Work closely with institutions where the risk of radicalisation and extremism may occur such as faith venues, schools, colleges, health care settings.
