5 September 2017

The Home Secretary and I have regular discussions on a range of issues.

The Government has made clear that there should be no safe space online for terrorists and their supporters to radicalise, recruit, incite, or inspire. We are supporting community-based initiatives that challenge Daesh’s core communications and provide credible counter narratives.

The Prevent Programme is fundamentally about safeguarding and supporting vulnerable individuals to stop them becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism. It works best when delivered in partnership with communities. In the last year, we have considerably increased our programme of Prevent activity through our network of Prevent professionals.
