Prevent is about safeguarding and supporting those vulnerable to radicalisation. Prevent is one of the four elements of CONTEST, the Government's counter-terrorism strategy. It aims to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism.
If you are concerned that someone may be at risk of being drawn into terrorism or being radicalised and there is no immediate threat, you can refer the individual for support by contacting any one of the following:
- Hampshire Adult Services on 0300 555 1386 (you will be asked to complete the Prevent Referral Form)
- Hampshire Police on 101
- Anti-Terrorist Hotline on 0800 789 321
You can also download and complete the Prevent National Referral Form to make a referral.
If you consider there to be an immediate threat to life, you should call 999 without delay.
If you have found material online which is illegal or of an extremist nature, as well as making a referral in any one of the above ways, you can also report it anonymously.
