Prevent is about safeguarding people and communities from the threat of terrorism. Prevent is 1 of the 4 elements of CONTEST, the Government’s counter-terrorism strategy. It aims to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism.
What does PREVENT do?
1. Responds to the ideological challenge we face from terrorism and aspects of extremism, and the threat we face from those who promote these views.
2. Provides practical help to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism and ensure they are given appropriate advice and support.
3. Works with a wide range of sectors (including education, criminal justice, faith, charities, online and health) where there are risks of radicalisation that we need to deal with.
