How do we know if Prevent is working?

Achieving the 3 Prevent objectives of ideology, individuals and institutions will help to create a situation where:

  • people speak out and contradict extremist messages where they come across them in public and private spaces;
  • people recognise the warning signs of extremism and act on them appropriately;
  • people who may be at risk get the support, confidence and knowledge to resist extremist messages; and
  • communities are equipped to reject violent extremism and marginalise and undermine those actively pushing the ideologies of hate, whilst supporting those who are vulnerable.
