Introduction to PREVENTOpens a external web page

This training takes about 45 minutes to complete.
Prevent is about safeguarding individuals from being drawn into terrorism, ensuring those vulnerable to extremist and terrorist narratives are given appropriate advice and support at an early stage. Prevent is no different to any other form of safeguarding from harm.
