Prevent aims to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism. It is considered to be “the only long term solution” to the threat from terrorism

Prevent is about supporting and protecting those people that might be susceptible to radicalisation, ensuring that individuals are diverted away before any crime is committed
