Prevent in Leeds

The purpose of the Prevent strategy is to safeguard and support vulnerable people to stop them from becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism.

Prevent is part of the UK’s CONTEST StrategyCONTEST Strategy that aims to reduce the risk to the UK and its citizens and interests overseas from terrorism. The strategy addresses all forms of terrorism across the extremism spectrum, from extreme far right to Daesh or Al-Qaeda inspired groups and from domestic to international terrorism.

Prevent has the following objectives:

  1. Tackle the causes of radicalisation and respond to the ideological challenge of terrorism
  2. Safeguard and support those most at risk of radicalisation through early intervention, identifying them and offering support
  3. Enable those who have already engaged in terrorism to disengage and rehabilitate.
