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.
