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'.
Liverpool Hope approach
The University’s approach to Prevent is primarily one of safeguarding the welfare of our students and staff. We balance this duty against our commitment to freedom of speech and other key legislation.
Concerns over students or colleagues
Staff or students are encouraged to report any concerns they may have by discussing these with the University Prevent Duty Lead Derrick Dykins (firstname.lastname@example.org).
If you have been affected by a terrorist incident, you should contact Student Development and Wellbeing (email@example.com) who will be able to provide support.
The Home Office has produced an online training package for Prevent. This will take you around 45 minutes to complete. All staff at the University are encouraged to complete the Prevent Training.
Please contact Shauna Anton (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions.
