The Independent Review of Prevent is reviewing the Government’s strategy for supporting people vulnerable to being drawn into terrorism and making recommendations for a future approach.
The Independent Reviewer of Prevent, William Shawcross, wants to hear from as wide a range of people as possible to help inform his final report, and is holding an event to allow people in the Midlands to share their views with him.
This event is your opportunity to have your say on Prevent and inform the recommendations the Review will make to the Government. We are particularly interested to hear your views on the following questions:
- What is the impact of Prevent on individuals, families and communities?
- What are the criticisms and complaints about Prevent?
- Is Prevent tackling the causes of radicalisation?
- Should there be a strategy aimed at supporting those vulnerable to being drawn into terrorism and what should it look like?
We will be contacting all registered attendees before the event to ask if you would like to submit comments in response to the above questions.
Data notice - How will the information I give you be used?
Thank you for agreeing to attend this event in July 2021. The meeting will help to inform the Independent Review of Prevent and will help gather evidence to formulate any recommendations the Reviewer considers necessary.

Most importantly, we would like to reassure you that anything you do say to us will be completely confidential and we will ensure it cannot be traced back to you personally. We will not publish any quotes or identifying details without your permission.
Notes of any engagement will be taken at each event. These notes will be part of the evidence base for the Review.
