PREVENT (part of the Government’s counter terrorism strategy ‘Contest’)

Event Overview:  

These workshops are to raise awareness among practitioners of the PREVENT Principle to reduce terrorism and to identify who may be targeted and exploited into supporting terrorism or indeed becoming susceptible to radicalisation into terrorism.


The health sector and indeed any organisation commissioned to provide care and support to vulnerable people are in a position of great influence and therefore should be viewed within existing safeguarding frameworks.


The Workshops include video material and group work.


The frequency of this training is once.


Target Group: 

Care Management/Care Co-Ordination Teams, staff employed by NHCT/NCC only.


NHCT Staff Team Sessions can still be arranged if preferred – please contact Leigh Waller to arrange.


Learning Outcomes: 


  • Understand the aim of PREVENT
  • Think about who may be vulnerable to terrorism
  • See why some people are able to influence and manipulate others to commit crimes
  • Recognise when a vulnerable individual may be in need of your help
  • Be clear on what help and support is available in relation to PREVENT and understand your role
  • Identify the reporting procedure within the working environment.
