The Prevent Agenda

Prevent is one of four work strands which make up the government‘s counter-terrorism strategy – CONTEST. The aim of CONTEST is to reduce the risk to the UK and its interests overseas from terrorism.

Pursue – focuses on detecting, investigating and disrupting terrorist threats to the UK and our interests overseas.

Protect – aims to reduce the vulnerability of the UK and UK interests overseas to terrorist attack. This includes aviation security for both cargo and passengers.

Prepare – aims to minimise the impact of any attack, manage any incidence of an ongoing attack and recover quickly and effectively

Prevent – aims to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism

As the preventative strand of CONTEST, Prevent will:-

  • Respond to the ideological challenge of terrorism and the threat faced by the UK from those who promote it
  • Prevent people from being drawn into terrorism and ensure they are given appropriate advice and support
  • Work with a wide range of sectors (including education, criminal justice, faith, charities, the internet and health) where there are risks of radicalisation which need to be addressed

For more information about Prevent , CONTEST or current terrorism threat levels please go to the Home Office website. More specifically there is a Home Office eLearning briefing on Prevent which can be accessed here.
