New Resource: 'Let's Talk About It' (LTAI) - Working Together to Prevent Terrorism

Let’s Talk About It  (LTAI) is an initiative designed to provide practical help and guidance to the public in order to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism. Let’s Talk About It has been created to provide a greater understanding of the support that Prevent and Channel can offer and to help challenge division and negativity in communities through positive and effective attitude changes. By highlighting the issues and initiating discussions around the potential threats that can be faced within communities, we can create greater understanding and wider awareness.

The website covers FAQs and  explores common terminology. It considers the difference between Prevent and Channel. The website includes a range of videos which may be helpful to stimulate discussions with both adults and young people. There is also a helpful section which explores keeping safe and identifying issues on social media.

Designated Safeguarding Leads may find it helpful to share the website with their communities (for example linking to it from their websites) or may find the content useful to share with staff as part of child protection training and/or updates.
