Voluntary Sector representatives work closely with partners to ensure that North Yorkshire’s communities continue to thrive.
Preventis the name given to the Government’s strategy for combating terrorism. The Prevent Implementation Board for North Yorkshire and York comprises Chief Executives from a range of organisations, with a remit to provide information and training for the Counter-Terrorism Local Profile and to ensure that local groups for Prevent operate in our area. North Yorkshire and York is not a high-risk area, although we do border areas which have been designated as high risk.
Caroline O’Neill, Policy & Partnerships Officer at Community First Yorkshire, represents the voluntary sector on the Prevent Board.
Training and resources
Please make use of the following online resources:
Channel eLearning – this package includes information on how Channel links to the Government’s counter terrorism strategy (CONTEST) through the Prevent strategy, guidance on how to identify people who may be vulnerable to being drawn into terrorism and how to refer them into the Channel process.
The Partnership works closely with other organisations and local authorities to explore issues such as domestic abuse, radicalisation and community cohesion. Find out more about the North Yorkshire Community Safety Partnership (CSP) here. The CSP is supported by district based Local Delivery Teams (LDTs), which provide intelligence and joint planning, and support partners and the community to deliver community safety solutions. The groups provide updates to the Prevent Board.
Police & Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire
Julia Mulligan, North Yorkshire’s Police & Crime Commissioner, works to ensure community needs are met as effectively as possible, and to improve local relationships with the police by building confidence and trust. Julia works in partnership across a range of agencies at local and national level to ensure there is a unified approach to preventing and reducing crime in North Yorkshire.
We work closely with the Police & Crime Commissioner’s Office to promote both the voluntary sector’s needs and the work of the Police & Crime Commissioner within the community.
