Abstract

Prevent is a UK-wide programme within the government’s anti-terrorism strategy aimed at stopping individuals from supporting or taking part in terrorist activities. NHS England’s Prevent Training and Competencies Framework requires health professionals to understand the concept of pre-criminal space. This article examines pre-criminal space, a new term which refers to a period of time during which a person is referred to a specific Prevent-related safeguarding panel, Channel. It is unclear what the concept of pre-criminal space adds to the Prevent programme. The term should be either clarified or removed from the Framework.
