At Wrexham Glyndwr University there are many different strands to our wellbeing provision, one of which is to safeguard our students from being drawn into terrorism or being subject to radicalisation. To achieve this, we work closely with external agencies and in line with the prevent legislation to create an open and inclusive learning environment, where the wellbeing of our students and colleagues is of upmost concern.

Prevent is one of four work strands which make up the government‘s counter-terrorism strategy:

  • Pursue – focuses on detecting, investigating and disrupting terrorist threats to the UK and our interests overseas.
  • Protect – aims to reduce the vulnerability of the UK and UK interests overseas to terrorist attack. This includes aviation security for both cargo and passengers.
  • Prepare – aims to minimise the impact of any attack, manage any incidence of an ongoing attack and recover quickly and effectively
  • Prevent – aims to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism

Prevent will:

  • Respond to the ideological challenge of terrorism and the threat faced by the UK from those who promote it
  • Prevent people from being drawn into terrorism and ensure they are given appropriate advice and support
  • Work with a wide range of sectors (including education, criminal justice, faith, charities, the internet and health) where there are risks of radicalisation which need to be addressed
