PREVENT focuses on all forms of terrorism and extremism and operates in a pre-criminal space, providing support and re-direction to vulnerable individuals at risk of being groomed in to terrorist activity before nay crims are committed.

Radicalisation is a safeguarding issue that staff working within the health sector must be aware of.

Since July 2015, public bodies have a legal duty to report people considered at risk of being drawn into terrorism.

 

If you have concerns about anyone please refer to the Safeguarding Team via ICE during in-hours and Police on 101 out-of-hours.
