The consultation is open until 11.45pm on 9 December 2019 and those working with the Prevent duty are encouraged to contribute to the call for evidence. It looks at a number of areas including:

  • How effective Prevent is at meeting its objectives
  • How the Prevent strategy responds to factors and drivers of radicalisation
  • Local and national objectives of Prevent
  • How effective the Channel programme is
  • What should Government develop for its future strategy
