Radicalisation - information for professionals

The Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 places a duty on anybody working with children and young people to be aware of the their duty to stop people from being drawn into terrorism.

This includes:

  • councils
  • schools
  • health authorities
  • children's homes
  • fostering agencies
  • other private, public and voluntary agencies.

Prevent is a Government strategy to protect people and communities from the threat of terrorism.

The Workshop to Raise Awareness of Prevent (WRAP) programme helps professionals understand Prevent and how they can play their part.
