Study into safeguarding and radicalisation

The Department for Education has published the results of a study into how local authorities respond to radicalisation. A key finding is that there are widely varying views about the extent to which radicalisation represents a safeguarding or child protection risk. A number of lessons emerged from the research about how some local authorities have addressed the challenges in this emerging practice area: agree who is responsible for responding to radicalisation; recognise the need for local authorities to reach agreement about the most appropriate response; define a single referral process; build an evidence base in order to learn from previous practice; share learning about appropriate interventions; and engage with communities to build awareness and understanding.
