The Government’s Channel Programme provides support to those identified as at risk of being drawn in to terrorism, and is a key part of the Prevent Strategy. It was rolled out nationally in April 2012 and there have been over 2000
referrals to Channel.
Channel works by identifying individuals who may be at risk from radicalisation, assessing the nature and the extent of the risk and where necessary, providing an appropriate support package tailored to their needs. It
involves partners such as local authorities, the police, education and health providers.
