The National Prevent Strategy is part of the Government’s counter terrorism strategy; CONTEST. It aims to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting extremism. It addresses all forms of terrorism but continues to prioritise according to the threat posed to national security. The Prevent strategy is focussed on delivering against three specific objectives:

  1. Challenging the ideology that supports terrorism and those who promote it;
  2. Protecting vulnerable individuals: to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism and ensure that they are given appropriate advice and support; and
  3. Supporting sectors and institutions where there are risks of radicalisation.
