Prevent: Reporting and preventing radicalisation, terrorism and extremism

If you believe that someone is at risk of radicalisation you can help them obtain support and prevent them becoming involved in terrorism by raising your concerns and making a referral. You may have concerns about a potentially vulnerable institution that is being exploited for the purpose of promoting an extremist ideology. In either case, a dedicated team is ready to help. Radicalisation is the process by which a person comes to support terrorism and extremist ideologies. If you are worried someone close to you is becoming radicalised act early and seek help. The sooner you reach out, the quicker we can protect the person you care about from being groomed and exploited by extremists.  Police forces across the country have specially trained officers who work alongside other organisations through a Home Office programme called Prevent to help people vulnerable to radicalisation move away from violent extremism. We are here to listen and offer help and advice. Receiving support is voluntary.  Friends and family are best placed to spot the signs, so trust your instincts and tell us your concerns in confidence.  We can help if you act early. You won't be wasting our time and you won’t ruin lives, but you might save them.   To find out more about how to help someone close to you visit actearly.uk Call the national police Prevent advice line 0800 011 3764, in confidence, to share your concerns with our specially trained Prevent officers. The advice line is open 9.00am to 5.00pm every day.

Preventing terrorism and extremism

The best way of preventing terrorism is to stop people becoming terrorists in the first place. Terrorists, extremist groups and their networks promote violence through a variety of ways. Recruiting others to their cause is how they continue to exist. We all have a role to play and together we can prevent terrorism to keep us all safe.
