Channel General Awareness

Channel is a key element of the Prevent strategy. It is a multi-agency approach to protect people at risk from radicalisation. Channel uses existing collaboration between local authorities, statutory partners (such as the education and health sectors, social services, children’s and youth services and offender management services), the police and the local community to:

  • identify individuals at risk of being drawn into terrorism
  • assess the nature and extent of that risk; and
  • develop the most appropriate support plan for the individuals concerned

Channel is about safeguarding children and adults from being drawn into committing terrorist-related activity. It is about early intervention to protect and divert people away from the risk they face before illegality occurs. To access this training click on the link above.

We all have a responsibility to be aware of this and to know what to do.
