Protecting children from radicalisation and extremism

There’s a chance that your child may meet people online or visit websites that could lead them to adopting extreme views or experiencing radicalisation.

Curiosity could lead your child to seek out these people, or they could groom your child. They could then encourage your child to adopt beliefs or persuade them to join groups with extreme views and actions.

To protect your child from radicalisation or to learn how young people might be targeted, navigate our advice hub. Explore expert tips on how to prevent radicalisation and where you can go for further support.
