Safeguarding Children and Young People from Radicalisation and Extremism

Delegates will discuss and debate the importance of collaborative working in the early detection of vulnerable children and young people who are at risk of radicalisation and explore ways in which this can be addressed through work in supplementary schools and madrassahs.

Extremists and extremism can flourish where different parts of a community remain isolated from each other; working together, communities can become more resilient to its influences.

Key points covered on the day will include:

  • Developing an effective working partnership approach to combat extremism, terrorism and radicalisation
  • Protecting vulnerable people and the early identification of radicalisation
  • Ensuring delegates have knowledge of risk indicators through training and development
  • Preventing religious radicalisation and violent extremism in young people
  • Preventing the radicalisation of young people through engagement and understanding
  • Minimising the risks of extremism and radicalisation in supplementary schools and Madrassahs. 

The conference is free of charge.
