PREVENT – Counter Terrorism
PREVENT is the Government’s strategy to help local areas to understand the threat of terrorism. Within County Durham, the Safe Durham Partnership has developed an e-learning course covering the process of radicalisation, how someone might be vulnerable to radicalisation and how staff might discuss or report any concerns. PREVENT has a strong link to safeguarding because vulnerable adults and young people can be susceptible to radicalisation and recruitment into terrorist organisations.
The Prevent eLearning Package is hosted on the Safeguarding Adults website, where you can also find instructions on how certificates are issued to recognise your training. Go to the Prevent eLearning Package.
This course has been developed with the Forced Marriage Unit of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Home Office. It aims to raise awareness, challenge perceptions and inform you of the correct actions to take should you suspect someone is at risk.
