The Prevent Strategy has three main objectives:
Ideology to respond to the ideological challenge of terrorism and of those extremist views conducive to it.
Individuals to prevent vulnerable people from being drawn into terrorism by developing and expanding programmes to identify who they are, and then to provide them with help and support.
Institutions to work within the wide range of sectors and Institutions where the Ideology, the Ideologues and vulnerable people come together and where there are either risks of radicalisation or opportunities to prevent it – or both. That means education, health, faith, charities, prisons and probation, and the internet.
