Crime and safety
Get help if you’re worried about someone being radicalised.
Prevent is a national safeguarding programme that supports people who are at risk of becoming involved with terrorism through radicalisation.
Radicalisation means someone is being encouraged to develop extreme views or beliefs in support of terrorist groups and activities.
Prevent is run locally by experts who understand the risks and issues in their area, and how best to support their communities. These experts include local authorities, the police, charities and community organisations.
There are different types of terrorism, and Prevent deals with all of them.
