NOTICE - CHECK - SHARE
If you notice a change in an individual that concerns you, in that they may be vulnerable to radicalisation, follow your organisation’s policy/ Prevent & Channel referral process. Check your concern with a manager or designated safeguarding lead and contact the Prevent team for advice. Share the concern with the police by completing the National Prevent Referral Form.
What Happens with the referral?
Referrals are screened for suitability through a preliminary assessment by the police. If suitable for multi-agency consideration, it is passed to the local authority Channel Panel.
What is Channel?
Channel is a voluntary, multi-agency process designed to safeguard vulnerable people from being drawn into violent extremism or terrorist behaviour. Channel is chaired by the local authority and works with multi-agency partners to collectively assess the risk to an individual, decide whether an intervention is necessary and offer an appropriate support package for each referral.
