Radicalisation – Act Early
Radicalisation is the process by which a person comes to support terrorism and extremist ideologies. If you think someone close to you is becoming radicalised, act early and seek help. Quick action can protect the person you care about 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 the move away from extremism. They are here to listen and offer help and advice. Receiving support is voluntary.
Friends and family are best placed to spot the signs, so trust your instincts and share your concerns in confidence. They can help you act early. The police would welcome information from you. Your choice to report it will help make a difference to people’s lives, you might even save them.
