Prevent is an area of safeguarding that deals with radicalisation into terrorist or extremist behaviour.
Radialisation is a type of abuse that can affect any individual, but it is known that recruiters to terror and extreme groups often target children (i.e., under 18s) and Adults at Risk, who may be less likely or able to question the ideologies these groups promote.
Identifying individuals who may be at risk of radicalisation means that early intervention and preventative measures can be put into place to support and protect individuals and the wider University community from potential terrorist and extremist acts.
Promoting the welfare of people vulnerable to being drawn into terrorism is a responsibility under the Prevent duty.
It is not your responsibility to risk assess the level of radicalisation, but when you do have a concern about a person, you can help by presenting as much context as possible when sharing that concern with your Line Manager.
