The Government unveiled its strategy to prevent people being drawn into terrorism in June 2011. The new strategy was published alongside a review of earlier Prevent activity and an assessment of the extent and causes of radicalisation .
The Prevent programme is an integral part of the wider counter terrorism strategy – CONTEST – and aims to stop people from becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism by challenging extremist ideology, helping to protect institutions from extremists and tackling the radicalisation of vulnerable people.
Prevent is delivered by a wide range of organisations including the police service.
