Prevent in South Gloucestershire
Prevent is a national programme which forms one strand of the Government’s Counter Terrorism programme. It addresses all forms of dangerous extremism.
The objectives of Prevent are:
- To respond to the ideological challenge of terrorism and the threat we face from those who promote it;
- To prevent people from being drawn into terrorism and to ensure that they are given appropriate advice and support; and
- To work with sectors and institutions where there are risks of radicalisation that we need to address.
There are specific statutory obligations under Prevent for schools and all other services.
