Prevent E-Learning Training

This is the entry level training course which will help you to identify signs of radicalisation and understand how to report concerns appropriately.

It offers an introduction to the Prevent duty, and explains how it aims to safeguard vulnerable people from being radicalised to supporting terrorism or becoming terrorists themselves.

‘More charitable funding should be given to deprived areas,’ Tory conference hears

There are fewer charities per head in deprived areas than elsewhere, which could hamper efforts to build stronger communities, the Conservative Party conference heard yesterday. 

Dan Corry, chief executive of the charity sector think tank New Philanthropy Capital, was speaking at a fringe event about town and city planning. He told the audience that when it comes to building successful communities with high levels of trust in those around them, “one thing that we do know that works is a strong civil society”.

But he added that the data shows that the more deprived an area, the fewer charities it has. With the caveat that the only data available is for registered charities, which doesn’t cover smaller scale community groups, Corry said that in well-off areas there are 2.3 charities per thousand people. 

In contrast there are 1.2 per thousand people in more deprived areas, with some places such as Blackpool having just 0.6 charities per thousand people.
