COVENTRY PREVENT TEAM
Coventry has a prevent specific resource to safeguard our communities. The Coventry Prevent Team are an all-age early intervention service across the city of Coventry who work to safeguard people from being radicalised, supporting extremist groups or becoming involved in terrorism.
They offer a range of training, policy guidance and support to partner organisations and community groups. Their key aim is to help people understand the local risks of radicalisation and to provide them with the knowledge and resources to build resilience within their area.
The Channel programme supports individuals at an early stage to disengage from all forms of extremism and terrorism. This is achieved through working with the individual to create and implement a bespoke multi-agency support plan.
