How does Prevent protect people from radicalisation?

Radicalisation means someone developing extreme views or beliefs in support of terrorist groups or activities. Prevent helps to guide people away from radicalisation, and the dangers it presents.

Some of the help offered through Prevent’s support programme, Channel, includes:

  • Mentoring and ideological interventions
  • Mental health support such as counselling
  • Education or career development support
  • Online safety training for parents

Being supported through Channel is voluntary, confidential, and won’t go on someone’s criminal record.
