The Romford constituency falls within the remit of the London Borough of Havering. The Government made Prevent a statutory duty in July 2015. The Duty requires all local authorities, including Havering, to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism.

A Home Office peer review of Havering’s delivery of the Prevent duty in January 2019 found that Havering had a strong approach to delivering the Prevent programme, which aims to prevent vulnerable individuals being drawn into terrorism. The Borough has a wide training and engagement programme for schools, colleges, childcare providers and children’s services. Those deemed most at risk of radicalisation are supported through Havering’s Channel Panel, with holistic needs addressed through the Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH).
