Prevent requires healthcare organisations to work with partner organisations to help prevent terrorism, and to safeguard and protect vulnerable individuals who may be at a greater risk of radicalisation. This makes safety a shared responsibility.

How can you help prevent terrorism?
As part of this work, the police depend on information from the public in their efforts to keep people safe. We would encourage anyone who has concerns about online content to report it to the police.
You can report illegal terrorist information, pictures or videos you’ve found on the internet. Your report will be treated anonymously.
Terrorist material could include:
- Articles, images, speeches or videos that promote terrorism
- Content encouraging people to commit acts of terrorism
- Websites made by terrorist organisations
- Videos of terrorist attacks.
