Workshop to raise awareness of Prevent

We’re holding a free workshop to help raise awareness about Prevent.

Prevent is part of the UK’s counter terrorism strategy, preventing people from becoming involved in terrorism or supporting terrorism.

The Counter Terrorism & Security Act (CTSA) 2015 places a duty on various specified authorities to have ‘due regard to the need to prevent people being drawn into terrorism’. 

This is referred to as a ‘Prevent Duty’ and involves:

  • responding to the ideological challenge of terrorism
  • preventing people from being drawn into terrorism
  • working with sectors and institutions where there are risks of radicalisation

The specific authorities within the act include Local Authorities, Police, Prisons and YOIs, Probation, Education and NHS bodies.

Aims: To increase awareness of Prevent as part of the UK’s counter terrorism strategy.

Cost: Free

Training dates and times

  • Wednesday 21st October 2020 from 9.30am to 4.30pm at Gun Wharf
