Prevent strategy in Royal Greenwich 

Prevent is part of the national counter-terrorism strategy and aims to stop people being drawn into or supporting terrorism.

The Prevent strand of the strategy focuses on three key areas to:

  • respond to the ideological challenge of terrorism and the threat from those who promote it
  • prevent people from being drawn into terrorism and make sure that they're given appropriate advice and support
  • work with sectors and institutions where there are risks of radicalisation that we need to address.

By adopting a multi-agency approach to protect and support people at risk from radicalisation, Royal Greenwich aims to safeguard children and adults from being drawn into terrorist-related activity and promote positive community cohesion.
