The Devon and Torbay PREVENT Partnership works to protect local people and communities from violent extremism. Violent extremism involves supporting or using violence to achieve a cause – this can include terrorist acts. People are groomed into supporting violent extremism through the process of radicalisation.
PREVENT is part of the Government’s counter-terrorism strategy (CONTEST) – it is ultimately about safeguarding people who may be vulnerable to being radicalised within our communities. These people can come from any faith, ethnicity or culture. PREVENT aims to stop them supporting violent extremism and terrorism using early intervention and diversion opportunities.
