National Prevent Strategy

Prevent is one of the four elements of CONTEST, the government’s counter-terrorism strategy.

It aims to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism.

The Prevent strategy has three core elements:

  • Ideology; responds to the ideological challenge we face from terrorism and aspects of extremism, and the threat we face from those who promote these views
  • Individuals; provides practical help to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism and ensure they are given appropriate advice and support
  • Institutions; works with a wide range of sectors (including education, criminal justice, faith, charities, online and health) where there are risks of radicalisation that we need to deal with

The strategy covers all forms of terrorism, including far right extremism and some aspects of non-violent extremism.

The Home Office works with local authorities, a wide range of government departments, and community organisations to deliver the Prevent strategy.
