Prevent Engagement Team

The team works with communities as part of the Prevent strategy. The overarching aim of Prevent is to stop people becoming involved in or supporting, any form of terrorism.

We work with local communities and businesses to identify sensitive cultural and politically relevant tensions and grievances.

We support the wider engagement activities already taking place in educational establishments, places of worship, work and community groups in the City of London. Through this work the team aims to strengthen communities in order that they may challenge the ideologies and messages of hate which lead to terrorism.

How can you help?

Preventing Terrorism is everyone’s responsibility; it is important that we all work together in order to protect the people in our communities who may be vulnerable to radicalisation and recruitment to a terrorist ideology or cause. There are many ways you can help:

  • Contact the Prevent Engagement Team in confidence if you are worried about colleagues, friends, relatives or neighbours.
  • Speak to the Prevent Engagement Team about helping run community events to encourage community cohesion.
  • Provide facilities that could help the police and our partners hold community engagement events.
