Prevent Event

"PREVENT is safeguarding against terrorism, SAFEGUARDING is everyone's responsibility."

Are you part of a local business or organisation? We would like to invite you, as key members of the local community, to attend a PREVENT initiative event which will discuss and explain Cyber/Internet Safety/Child Exploitation and the Prevent Duty in more detail.

Prevent is aimed at stopping people becoming radicalised and to support those at risk and most importantly to provide safeguarding interventions to those in need! In doing this many Prevent qualified individuals provide training to schools in order for teachers to recognise signs of radicalisation and what factors may make certain people more vulnerable. All schools are taught the Fundamental British Values (age appropriate depending on year group) in order to educate and protect ALL generations and encourage them to respect others.

It is important to raise awareness in the local communities, in the exercise of their functions and their need to have due regard to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism. This sounds very high level and convoluted, but there is a proven need locally to raise awareness of Cyber and Internet Safety, Child Exploitation and Radicalisation. Everyone should have a willingness to understand/learn about these dangers in order to safeguard those most vulnerable.

Members of our local Police Force and NWLDC will provide sessions on Cyber/Internet Safety/Child Exploitation and the Prevent Duty with a chance for local groups and people to network and promote their own groups during the break. (If you wish to have a display board please advise when confirming your attendance).

The idea is to raise awareness of the need and then to help facilitate and promote the work within the schools through the plays put on by AlterEgo – "Going to Extremes and Chelsea's Choice" and ensure that as many parents, carers and residents get the chance to access and view this information.

The event will be held on Tuesday 14th November at 7pm-9pm at The Spital Pavilion, Castle Donington, DE74 2NQ.

Arrival 6.30pm for tea, coffee and networking.

As an important member of your local community we hope that you accept that safeguarding is EVERYONE'S responsibility and that you and your colleagues will be able to attend.

Please confirm your attendance by Friday 10th November 2017, to either

This event was made possible by the parish councils listed above; the local Police Team and NWLDC.
