Extremism

The Counter Terrorism and Security Act received Royal Assent on 12th February 2015. As part of this, the legal duty and statutory guidance expects Local Authorities to assess the threat of radicalisation in their areas and to take appropriate action.

If you concerned that a child, young person and/or their parents may hold extremist views or are at risk of being radicalised you have a duty to ensure that they receive support to protect them from being drawn into terrorism.
