Preventing violent extremism

Information regarding suspected terrorist activity should be reported to the police or the anti-terrorist hotline on 0800 789 321.

The Prevent programme is part of the government’s anti-terrorism strategy and aims to stop vulnerable people being radicalised into violent extremism of any kind.

In Bracknell Forest, the Prevent Steering Group is chaired by the council and includes representatives from the police, health service, education and the local community.

There are 3 sections to the Prevent agenda:

  • responding to the ideological challenge
  • preventing people from being drawn into terrorism
  • working with sectors and institutions

A key element of Prevent is Channel, which meets locally to discuss individuals who have been identified as being at risk of radicalisation, but have not committed any terrorism offence. The panel meets when a referral has been made.

If you believe someone is vulnerable and at risk of being radicalised into any form of violent extremism they should be referred to Channel. This can be done through the police locally on 101 or through our Community Safety Team.
