The links below will take you to the relevant pages on the Herefordshire Council website.

Prevent is about safeguarding people and communities from the threat of terrorism.  Prevent is one of the four elements of CONTEST, the Government's counter-terrorism strategy. It aims to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism.

Channel also forms part of this strategy and provides support to individuals who may be vulnerable to being drawn into terrorism. The overall aim of the Channel programme is early intervention and diverting people away from the risk they may face.
