The COVID19 health crisis has had a major impact on every aspect of our lives and communities and the world of Prevent and Safeguarding is no different. With increased online activity by extremist and terrorist groups at a time when many of learners are isolated and spending increasing periods of time online and without the usual safeguarding oversight and interventions to support them, this presents obvious concerns.
Prevent referrals have fallen during the period of lockdown leaving an uncertain picture about what this will mean in the post lockdown phase and what hidden risks await us. How will providers uncover the extent of these hidden vulnerabilities and risks and how might they manage them?
This webinar explores the likely extent of the impact of lockdown on Prevent and wider safeguarding referrals and how providers might adopt a proactive response to the issue.
