The Prevent Duty Guidance places a duty on schools, and child care providers, to “have due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism”.
Young People's involvement in serious youth violence including drug distribution has links to organised crime and other risk areas, for example child sexual exploitation. It is recognised as a key area of safeguarding.
