"Prevent" is one of the four elements of CONTEST, the government’s counter-terrorism strategy. It aims to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism.

The Prevent strategy:

  • Responds to the ideological challenge faced from terrorism and aspects of extremism, and the threat faced from those who promote these views
  • Provides practical help to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism
  • Works across all sectors of the community where there are risks of radicalisation that need to be dealt with

The strategy covers all forms of terrorism, including far right extremism and some aspects of non-violent extremism.

For any concerns around violent extremism, for both adults and children, contact Greater Manchester Police on 0161 856 6345.
