Safeguarding Vulnerable People from Extremism

Helping to reduce the threat from terrorism and extremism and knowing how to report a concern.

The Prevent strategy is part of the UK Counter Terrorism Strategy (CONTEST)  published by the Government in 2011.

Prevent has three main objectives to:

  • respond to the ideological challenge of terrorism
  • support vulnerable people and prevent people from being drawn into terrorism
  • work with key sectors and institutions and address risks.

It focuses on early intervention before any illegal activity takes place. The aim is to reduce the likelihood of individuals who support a violent extremist ideology of becoming terrorists.
