A Twitter account which aims to provide support and advice to combat radicalisation has been launched.

The @LTAIPrevent account will link into the Let’s Talk About It website which provides information enabling people to learn more about the government’s Prevent strategy with an aim to safeguard those who may be vulnerable to radicalisation.

The website has been designed by the Eastern Counter Terrorism Intelligence Unit Prevent Team with the support of local partners which work together with the community to safeguard those vulnerable to radicalisation and challenge extremism.

There is a range of supportive material on the website which also provides links to partner agencies to help people spot the signs of radicalisation at an early stage and provide communities with advice as to what to do.

If you are concerned about someone travelling to, or returning from, Syria or another conflict zone or you are worried about someone showing signs of being radicalised, call police on 101 to access relevant support and advice.
