Prevent is part of the UK’s counter terrorism strategy (Contest), preventing people from becoming involved in terrorism or supporting terrorism.

An integral part to the success of Prevent is involving people who already have the skills and support to hand that can recognise when someone may be becoming involved in or supporting terrorism and can help make a decision not to carry on that path before any crime is committed.

The Introduction to Prevent webinar is aimed at providing attendees with an awareness and understanding of the Prevent agenda and their role within it. In particular, it seeks to support them to recognise that by using their existing expertise and professional judgement, they may be able to recognise potentially vulnerable individuals who may be susceptible to being persuaded by an extremist or terrorist ideology.

If you/member of your staff would like to attend, please send your nomination and the date of preferred session to tay.resilience@nhs.scot. A Microsoft Teams link will be sent out the week before the session. Places will be on a first come, first served basis.

With the first session scheduled for March, we would strongly encourage staff interested in attending this session to sign up as soon as possible for this session.

We would be grateful if you could please cascade this information and share with your teams to secure engagement.
