Radicalisation Survey Results Comment

Commenting on a survey conducted by Community Care on radicalisation, Jenny Coles, Chair of the ADCS Families, Communities and Young People, said:

“There is no one-size fits all approach to preventing radicalisation; it can take many shapes and forms and each locality faces its own challenges. So spotting those at risk is far from straightforward and finding a way to reach out to them can be difficult. The key to prevention is a mix of partnership working, early engagement and community based approaches. Social workers have an important contribution to make and both central and local government have produced a wealth of resources to support professionals in their work and guide them in making Prevent referrals when necessary. We recognise that our learning of this issue continues to rapidly unfold and going forward local authorities must continue to work with their safeguarding partners and the local community, to develop the range of materials available to practitioners and the wider public so that we are able to safeguard the most vulnerable.”
