P R E V E N T

The PREVENT Strategy (2011) is part of the Government’s overall Counter Terrorism
Strategy.

PREVENT involves the identification and referral of those people susceptible to violent extremism into appropriate interventions which aim to divert them from the path to radicalisation The Dangers of Extremism

You will be aware from recent news items, that a new risk threatens the safety of young people – the risk of radicalisation by an extremist group. These extremist groups-such as right wing English racist groups (example: Combat 18), Animal Rights Activists (those who use violence and make death threats) and ISIS inspired Islamist groups, are actively trying to recruit young people in schools, colleges and within local communities.

This leaflet is designed to raise your awareness and inform you on who to contact if you have any concerns
