The Government’s PREVENT strategy focuses on stopping people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism. It is part of the Government’s counter terrorism strategy CONTEST, which is led by the Home Office. As PREVENT is about recognising when vulnerable individuals are being exploited for terrorist-related activities, the guidance is about PREVENT being integrated into our safeguarding structures. PREVENT addresses all forms of terrorism but prioritises these according to the threat they pose to our national security. PREVENT is delivered in partnership by a wide range of organisations including the police service. Together we recognise that the best long term solution to preventing terrorism is to stop people becoming terrorists in the first place.

We are reviewing our Prevent Policy and will upload this shortly.
