Let's Talk About It...

is an initiative designed to provide practical help and guidance to the public in order to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism

We are now more aware of the varying factors that can make someone vulnerable to radicalisation and drive them to support terrorism

Our aim is to work together to focus on
three key areas:

Building close relationships between our schools and universities, prisons, places of worship, health services, children’s services, community groups, charities and other institutions;

Challenging extremist ideology by working closely with local and national agencies, partners and our communities; and

Supporting vulnerable individuals through intervention projects.

Understanding the Issues

There are many different types of individuals, organisations and institutions that may be targeted by extremist groups.

They may try to take advantage of these individuals or institutions as a way to share their story with others, particularly with people who may be vulnerable to their messages.

Let’s Talk About It advocates the value of a strong and united community, prioritising the need for consistent awareness of the threat of radicalisation to become a part of our daily lives.

Changing behaviours through open conversation is the key to removing the barriers that stand in the way of a unified society.

Now is the time to draw people together, sending positive messages about the value of cohesion and uniting over a common goal.

Movements exist which are enhancing cohesion, challenging division and negativity through positive and effective attitude changes.
