About Prevent champions

Who are Prevent champions?

Champions are volunteers across the council and partner agencies who:

  • have a good understanding and knowledge of Prevent
  • have received training and been provided with resources to develop their knowledge
  • can provide guidance and support to colleagues
What does the Prevent champions role include?

Prevent champions are expected to:

  • be a point of contact for their team or department so staff can discuss their concerns or ask questions
  • cascade and share information with others

Information will be shared with champions by Counter Terrorism Police North East, Humberside Police and the council. This will be done through:

  • regular newsletters
  • face to face briefings
  • training sessions and opportunities
Prevent champions network

Through the East Riding multi agency board, we along with partner agencies are building a Prevent champions network.

The network aims to:

  • involve more people in the Prevent agenda and increase local knowledge and transparency
  • make sure local agencies and key partners are well briefed on current threats and risk issues
  • make sure people who are vulnerable to radicalisation receive appropriate support
What training does a champion receive?

The training you receive varies and depends on the national and localised threats within counter terrorism and the availability of resources. You will find out more about this if you register your interest in becoming a champion. All training is currently being delivered online.

How can I contact a Prevent champion?

There are currently 26 Prevent champions across the council covering 3 directorate areas. There is also a Channel Panel representative for each of the 3 directorates.

Champions are available during their normal working hours (generally Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 5pm, although some are part time).

You can contact a champion by email, telephone or Teams chat. If you are contacting them by Teams via voice or video chat, just contact them to let them know you are calling first.

Can I volunteer to be a champion?

Yes of course, any member of staff can volunteer. We would advise that you discuss this with your line manager before making a commitment to become a champion as they will need to allow you time to attend occasional training and briefings during work time.
