Launch of new counter terrorism website actearly.uk

Radicalisation is the process by which a person comes to support terrorism and extremist ideologies. If you are worried someone close to you is becoming radicalised act early and seek help. The sooner you reach out, the quicker the person you care about can be protected from being groomed and exploited by extremists. 

 Police forces across the country have specially trained Prevent officers who work with professionals in health, education, local authorities and charities, as well as faith and community groups to help vulnerable people move away from extremism. 

Friends and family are best placed to spot the signs, so trust your instincts and share your concerns in confidence.  They can help if you act early. You won't be wasting police time and you won’t ruin lives, but you might save them.

Each day, advice will be sent out on a different safeguarding theme, telling the community what signs they should be looking out for, and where to turn to if they have concerns about adults.

Virtual training and discussion groups will be available during the week on safeguarding topics including Adult Grooming, Scams and Financial Abuse, Mental Capacity Act and Self Neglect.  Details of how to access this via MS Teams will be available on the ERSAB website.  www.ersab.org.uk and through Social Media
