Protecting children from radicalisation and extremism

There’s a chance that your child may meet people online or visit websites that could lead them to adopting what you consider to be extreme views, and becoming radicalised.

Curiosity could lead your child to seek out these people, or they could befriend your child in order to encourage them to adopt beliefs or persuade them to join groups whose views and actions you as a parent would consider extreme.

Whether you’d like to protect your child from being radicalised or you are concerned that may be at risk, navigate our advice hub to get expert tips on practical ways you can support them and where you can go for further support.
