There is no single pathway to radicalisation for Islamist inspired, Far Right, or any other form of terrorism, and our radicalisation model applies to all forms of terrorism.

The introduction of the Prevent Duty has embedded consideration of the risk of radicalisation in the day-to-day work of frontline statutory partners. It covers schools, colleges, universities, health, local authorities, police and prisons.

142 community based projects were delivered in the UK in 2015/16 reaching over 42,000 participants. Over half of these projects were delivered in schools, aimed at increasing young people’s resilience to terrorist and extremist ideologies.
