Welcome to the Prevent page!
Prevent is part of the national counter-terrorism strategy and aims to stop people from being drawn into or supporting terrorism by working with some government departments, local authorities, and community organisations.
Our three areas of focus are to:
- Respond to the ideological challenge of terrorism and the threat from those who promote it.
- Prevent people from being drawn into terrorism and ensure they are given the right advice and support.
- Work with institutions (including education settings) where there are risks of radicalisation that need to be addressed.
The Prevent strategy covers all forms of terrorism, violent extremism, and some aspects of non-violent extremism. From July 2015, the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act means it is a statutory duty for organisations such as schools, councils and hospitals to support and help people at risk of radicalisation. You can find the Prevent Duty, and our Enfield Prevent Toolkit in the key documents section below.
We have a dedicated Prevent Education Officer (PEO) who works with schools across the borough to provide classroom workshops, resources, and staff training. Please see our ‘Training and resources’ document in the key documents tab below for the full list of training and workshops available.

On The Hub, we have further resources available for you. Under ‘Teaching Staff Resources’ we have some information on Prevent, Prevent and Covid-19, and ‘votes for schools’ home resources on extremism. Under ‘Parent/Carer Resources’ we have included some accessible information on online safety, online radicalisation risks, and some social media info cards.
For more information on these resources, or to request more tailored resources for your setting, please get in touch at email@example.com
