The Prevent strategy was initially published by the previous coalition government in 2011 and is part of the UK’s overall counter-terrorism strategy, CONTEST. The aim is to reduce the threat to UK from terrorism by stopping people becoming radicalised or supporting terrorism.
Since summer 2015 there has been a statutory duty on certain bodies to have "due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism" and to report incidents of risk to appropriate staff and organisations. These briefings have been prepared to assist members who may work in an organisation covered by the Duty. They don't represent our position but are a summary of the Government's guidance.
