What is Prevent?

Prevent is part of the national counter-terrorism strategy and aims to stop people being drawn into or supporting terrorism.

The Prevent strand of the strategy focuses on three key areas which are:

  • To respond to the ideological challenge of terrorism and the threat from those who promote it
  • To prevent people from being drawn into terrorism and ensure that they are given appropriate advice and support
  • To work with sectors and institutions where there are risks of radicalisation that we need to address

By adopting a multi-agency approach to protect and support people at risk from radicalisation, Aspiring Communities continues to work with West Yorkshire Police and other organisations to prevent individuals from being drawn into terrorist-related activity and promote positive community cohesion.
