Prevent Road Map - Kingston contact details for vulnerable children or adults with concerns for radicalisation and extremism.
Practitioners will be able to read here London Borough Tower Hamlets v B  EWHC 1707 (Fam) (13 July 2016) a very interesting judgement regarding the radicalisation of a young woman in London, partially through the Dark Web. There is good learning and very good social work practice. This will be used in our LSCB training. The judgement goes on to include a paper on radicalisation, outlining the vulnerability of young women, the dangers of isolation (the young person involved was Home Educated) and the influence of other young people and family members.
Brighton LSCB Serious Case Review - July 2017 regarding the tragic death of two brothers in Syria in 2014. There is learning about practitioner and community response; working with trauma and risky behaviour and the need for professional curiosity.
Safeguarding and Radicalisation - a research report published August 2017 the report found some links between radicalisation and other types of grooming, such as for CSE (Child Sexual Exploitation). However the vulnerabilities to radicalisation were more complex. There is learning about how the response must be multi agency, that there is a need for staff confidence, and community and family engagement.
Find out more about both reports in our LSCB summary here.

Many children will be upset by recent news of terror attacks. Although such events are hard to discuss with children and young people it is important that parents, carers and professionals address any anxieties they may have as a result of what they have heard or seen. It is important to avoid causing further distress.
