Tackling terrorism, together!
The Prevent Strategy is a cross-Government policy that forms one of the four strands of CONTEST: the United Kingdom’s Strategy for Counter Terrorism. It includes the anti-radicalisation of vulnerable adults and children.
CONTEST as a counter-terrorism strategy is organised around four work streams, each comprising a number of key objectives:
PURSUE: To stop terrorist attacks;
PREVENT: To stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism;
PROTECT: To strengthen our protection against a terrorist attack; and
PREPARE: To mitigate the impact of a terrorist attack.
