Q941: What is the PREVENT programme?
PREVENT is part of the Government's counter terrorism strategy which aims to stop people becoming or supporting terrorists and terrorists activities. It works with a wide range of sectors (educational, faith, criminal justice, charities etc.) offering appropriate support and advice where there are risks of radicalisation.
The strategy prioritises the work load according to the risk that is currently being faced - which at the moment is radicalisation and extremism.
