Prevent works best when delivered in partnership, the foundation of the programme is the local work delivered through communities and our network of civil society groups. We have increased and diversified the organisation we work with, bringing bigger charities and more locally based groups. 169 community based projects were delivered in 2016/17 reaching over 53,000 participants. 44% of these projects were delivered in schools, aimed at increasing young people’s resilience to terrorist and extremist ideologies.
