Prevent is the name given to part of the government's strategy to prevent terrorism by reducing the possibility of radicalisation and extremism. The Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 (CTSA) creates a statutory duty for specified public authorities to 'have due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism'. Prevent is one of four strands of the government’s counter-terrorism strategy. Compliance with the duty in England is monitored by the Office for Students (OfS).

Liverpool Hope University’s approach to Prevent is primarily one of safeguarding the welfare of our students and staff. We also balance the duty against our commitment to freedom of speech and other key legislation.
