Radicalisation is defined as the process by which people come to support terrorism and extremism and, in some cases, to then participate in terrorist groups.

The Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 places a duty on specified authorities and childcare, education and other children’s services providers … to have due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism (“the Prevent duty”). … The Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 also places a duty on local authorities to ensure Channel panels are in place.
