About this event

Welcome to Salford’s Prevent Conference.

This conference is aimed at giving you more information and guidance about what Prevent is, how Salford City Council and partners are preventing vulnerable people from being drawn into terrorism and the role you play in supporting this. By the end of the day, we hope you will have understood the amazing projects that are going on in Salford around Prevent and how you can be a part of this. Don’t worry if you aren’t from Salford, the information you will gain will be relevant across other local areas and details of your local Prevent team can be provided.

How the Day Will Run:

This year, the conference will run online, with sessions over Teams. Once you have booked through Eventbrite, the links you will follow to attend the sessions will be sent to you 48 hours before the event.

In the morning, we will all come together for an introductory session and listen to a panel of speakers, including the Home Office, Counter Terrorism Policing, Department for Education, the NHS, Small Steps and Oasis Academy, to talk about why Prevent is so important.

In the afternoon, you will be able to choose from a number of workshops those that are most relevant to you and your organisation. A description of the workshops available can be found at the bottom of this page, and you will be able to pick three when you book.

At the end of the day, we will all come together again for a debrief session where you have the opportunity to ask any further questions you may have and let us know how we can support you further.
