Counter terrorism

Channel/PREVENT e-Learning - CHANNEL General Awareness

This e-Learning provides information on Channel and is for all staff in Adult Services

Channel is a programme which focuses on providing support at an early stage to people who are identified as being vulnerable to being drawn into terrorism. The programme uses a multi-agency approach to protect vulnerable people by:

  • identifying individuals at risk
  • assessing the nature and extent of that risk
  • developing the most appropriate support plan for the individuals concerned

Sections 36 to 41 of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 set out the duty on local authorities and partners of local panels to provide support for people vulnerable to being drawn into any form of terrorism.

Participants will learn how to:

  • Explain how Channel links to the Government’s counter terrorism strategy (CONTEST)
  • Describe the Channel process and its purpose
  • Identify factors that can make people vulnerable to radicalisation
  • Define Safeguarding and risk ownership of the Channel process
