Prevent: Resources

General Prevent resources

Report online material promoting terrorism or extremism

Report illegal or harmful information, pictures or videos you’ve found on the internet. You can report things like:

  • articles, images, speeches or videos that promote terrorism or encourage violence
  • websites made by terrorist or extremist organisations
  • videos of terrorist attacks


It can be hard to know what to do if you’re worried someone close is expressing extreme views or hatred, which could lead to them harming themselves or others. Working with other organisations, the police protect vulnerable people from being exploited by extremists through a Home Office programme called Prevent.

Using this website, you can get information and act early to report your concerns. You won’t be wasting anyone’s time, but you might just save lives.
