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.
