What does Prevent mean?

The Counter-Terrorism and Security Act (2015) places a duty on a range of organisations to have due regard to the need to prevent people of all ages from being drawn into terrorism and extremist activity.

The Prevent strategy, published by the Government in 2011, is part of our overall counter-terrorism strategy, CONTEST. The aim of the Prevent strategy is to reduce the threat to the UK from terrorism by stopping people from becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism.

The Prevent strategy recognises that EDLounge, its partners, associates, customers and staff may come into contact with individuals (both children and adults) who are susceptible to radicalisation.

Radicalisation is usually a process, not a one-off event, and during that process, it is possible to intervene to safeguard the vulnerable individual before any harm has occurred or a crime has been committed.

EDLounge staff also have Counter-terrorism and PREVENT training.
