The Prevent programme

The best way to tackle terrorism is to stop people being drawn into violent extremist activity in the first place.

The Prevent programme works to offer bespoke support to those at risk.

It covers all forms of extremism and anyone with concerns that an individual may be being radicalised should contact police on 101. But early intervention is vital. If you have concerns, do not delay.
Prevent is a safeguarding programme that has saved hundreds of people being drawn into serious criminal activity. It has given many a positive future, when they could have been heading for a criminal record – or worse.
