The link below can be used by VCSE organisations to assist with reporting any concerns around Prevent.
The attached poster above is also of use as it focuses on the vulnerabilities of an individual which is often the best indicator of a someone’s susceptibility to radicalisation.
In addition to the online link Prevent referrals can also be made via 101 or E-mailing Prevent@humberside.pnn.police.uk , but the online link is the preferred method.
What happens when a referral is received?
Prevent is about safeguarding people and communities from the threat of terrorism.
Prevent is 1 of the 4 elements of CONTEST, the Government’s counter-terrorism strategy. It aims to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism.
Once a referral is received and assessed it may be suitable to be dealt with via Channel.
Channel provides support to those identified as being vulnerable to radicalisation. It is a multi-agency group with the aim of providing early intervention and diverting people away from the terrorist harm they may face.
Channel is consensual and is about offering support to vulnerable people and not about spying on them. It works by partners jointly assessing the nature and the extent of the risk, and where necessary providing an appropriate support package tailored to the individual’s needs.
Remember that safeguarding vulnerable people from radicalisation is no different to safeguarding them from other forms of potential harm
