The Prevent Strategy in Hounslow
Prevent is part of the Government's counter terrorism strategy CONTEST.
Safeguarding vulnerable people from radicalisation is no different from safeguarding them from other forms of harm
The Prevent Strategy aims to stop people becoming radicalised and being drawn into terrorism in all its forms.
Hounslow has a statutory duty to:
"...have due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism"
In Hounslow our Prevent Team is part of the Community Partnerships Unit
And the team focuses on these three key areas:
- Responding to the ideological challenge of terrorism and the threat from those who promote it
- Preventing individuals from being drawn into terrorism and ensuring that they are given appropriate advice and support
- Working with sectors and institutions where there are risks of radicalisation that we need to address
The Home Office has produced a concise guide to Prevent which gives a very useful overview of the strategy and should answer most questions that you might have.

Channel is a programme which provides support at an early stage to people who are vulnerable to being drawn into terrorism. Channel is about ensuring that vulnerable children and adults of any faith, ethnicity or background receive support before their vulnerabilities are exploited by those that would want them to embrace terrorism and potentially take part in illegal terrorist activities.
