By early February 2008, the Improvement and Development Agency will have accredited approximately 30 peers to work with local authorities on the Preventing Violent Extremism agenda. The peers are a mix of local politicians and cabinet members with responsibility for preventing extremism; senior local government officers; and senior members from the voluntary sector. A schedule of pilot visits to local authorities is being planned for spring 2008.
