Prevent Guidance Workshop – Friday 27th February 2015
As part of ongoing engagement opportunities with local schools, Lancashire Constabulary Prevent and Diversity Teams delivered a presentation to year 10 and year 11 pupils. This was held in the Main Hall from 10.45-12.15 pm.
The presentation focused on key issues around the conflict in Syria – how to help the people through recognised charities without having to travel to the conflict area, what life is like for the people in Syria including the number of people who have fled to other countries, the consequences of travelling to Syria and what to expect when returning to the UK from conflict zones.
The presentation also touched on the safe use of internet and what support mechanisms are in place for individuals who may be at risk of being radicalised or encouraged to travel to Syria.
