The national objectives for Prevent include:
• respond to the ideological challenge of terrorism and the threat we face from those who promote it;
• prevent people from being drawn into terrorism and ensure that they are given appropriate advice and support; and
• work with sectors and institutions where there are risks of radicalisation which we need to address.
Channel is the key element of the prevent strategy. It is a multi-agency approach to protect people at risk from radicalisation. For more information about Channel, click here.
