The Counter Terrorism strategy involves many organisations, including the Police, emergency services, local authorities, businesses, voluntary and community organisations and other partners - working together across the UK to protect the public.
Prevent is a core part of the UK Counter-Terrorism strategy.
The strategy has four elements:
- Pursue - to stop terrorist attacks
- Protect - to strengthen our protection against terrorist attacks
- Prepare - where an attack cannot be stopped, to lessen its impact
- Prevent - to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism
What does this mean?
Prevent is about identifying people who may be at risk of radicalisation and supporting them to change direction in a way that will help them. It is about working with communities to help them support vulnerable people and build resilience against groups or individuals who seek to create divisions and cause harm.
Prevent work covers all forms of extremism and terrorism. The Prevent strategy has three specific strategic objectives:
- Ideology - challenging the ideology that supports terrorism and those that support it.
- Individuals - protecting vulnerable people from getting involved in or supporting terrorism
- Institutions - supporting sectors & institutions where there are risks of radicalisation
