The Government's PREVENT Strategy aims to stop people supporting or being drawn into terrorism. It is about ensuring that vulnerable children and adults receive the support they need before vulnerabilities are exploited by those that would want them to embrace terrorism and before they become involved in terrorist related activity.
The PREVENT Action Plan identifies training as a priority for the Council and the wider partnership who will provide our local multi-agency response to identified concerns.
The Prevent Development Officer for our LA is Georgia Lee. She is based at Lord St Centre with Youth Justice and delivers bi-monthly Prevent training events for the Authority, both virtually and face to face.
Channel panels are chaired on a monthly basis for St Helens wherein vulnerable children and adult referrals can be discussed and appropriate intervention put in place to support them from being drawn into terrorist activity. If you have a concern about an adult or a child who is vulnerable, then please refer to the referral form below.
'Stickering' is the term used when extremist promotional material is placed within the community. You can report 'stickering' within your community. Please click the red 'Referrals/Reporting' box below for the process map and reporting proforma.
