The Prevent Hub can help communities and education establishments develop and deliver a project, resource or tool to raise awareness of the dangers of extremism and radicalisation.
A project can range from one off sessions to weekly sessions that are embedded within the community or within a school curriculum. Not all resources and learning specifically refer to radicalisation, extremism or terrorism but cover learning outcomes to build resilience to radicalisation and other forms of harm by focusing on:
- Beliefs and values
- Developing empathy
- Risk identification and management
- The development of critical thinking skills
- Understanding influence, persuasion and manipulation
- Assessing and evaluating fact from fiction
Example projects delivered in Kirklees

- Challenging propaganda
Extreme organisations will openly use propaganda to influence and recruit individuals in an attempt share an ideology or join a cause. Through the use of dialogue and group work, participants will be equipped with the skills and knowledge to critically assess, explore and challenge material and content both online and offline. Through applying adequate privacy and filtering settings, encouraging safe dialogue between individuals and raising awareness of the importance of reporting concerning material, participants will observe images and learn how to use their critical thinking skills to assess the origins of the material, how it has been created and what its purpose may be.
