‘Prevent’ What is it and what should we do if we are concerned?

Prevent is about stopping people from being radicalised and becoming terrorists supporting terrorism. At the heart of Prevent is safeguarding children and adults, and providing early intervention to protect and divert people away from being drawn into terrorist activity. Safeguarding vulnerable people from radicalisation is no different from safeguarding from other forms of harm.

Let’s Talk About It – Working Together to Prevent Terrorism

Early indicators of extremism may include:

  • Showing sympathy for extremist causes
  • Glorifying violence
  • Evidence of possessing illegal or extremist literature
  • Advocating messages similar to illegal organisations such as ‘Muslims Against Crusades’ or other non-prescribed extremist groups such as the English Defence league
  • Out of character changes in dress, behaviour and peer relationships.

Get help if you’re worried about someone being radicalised – GOV.UK ( – The New GOV.UK Prevent Guidance page provides clear, accessible information about the Prevent programme, advice on how to make a referral and the types of support offered through Channel. It is intended to complement existing resources such as ACT Early and Educate Against Hate.

Prevent is one part of the government’s overall counter-terrorism strategy, CONTEST. The aim of Prevent is to:

  • tackle the causes of radicalisation and respond to the ideological challenge of terrorism
  • safeguard and support those most at risk of radicalisation through early intervention
  • enable those who have already engaged in terrorism to disengage and rehabilitate.

Safeguarding children, young people and adult learners who are vulnerable to radicalisation depends on good partnership working.

Each local authority has its own referral routes for safeguarding children, young people and vulnerable adults from radicalisation and extremism. Effective partnerships will ensure that you understand these processes.

If you have any concerns that someone you support is at risk of being radicalised please tell your line manager.


Talk to your line manager. If you cannot talk to them, talk to your Head of Service or Naomi Cox, Grace Eyre Safeguarding Lead. You can contact Naomi at or on 07584 706 013.
