The Home Office's Office for Security and Counter Terrorism allocated £2.7 million to the National Offender Management Service in 2008-9 to support the delivery of a programme of work to address the risks associated with violent extremism and radicalisation. This programme includes improved intelligence gathering; training and awareness-raising for staff; support for chaplaincy teams; and work to research and develop appropriate interventions. The programme is reviewed by senior officials and by Ministers on a regular basis.
