What is Prevent

Prevent is part of the Government’s counter-terrorism strategy CONTEST and is designed to safeguard vulnerable people and communities from the threat of radicalisation and being drawn into terrorism.

There are different types of terrorism and Prevent deals with all of them. The most common types of terrorism in the UK are extreme right-wing terrorism and Islamist terrorism.

The Newcastle Prevent team work together with Partnership agencies to stop people becoming involved in or supporting terrorist activity. Under the Prevent Duty all public sector agencies have a responsibility to ensure their staff and volunteers have a good understanding of Prevent and their responsibilities towards individuals, groups, or families they are working with.
