Next FTiL Event

You are invited to a Community Question Time on Prevent on Thursday 21st February at South London Liberal Synagogue, 1 Prentis Road, SW16 1QB. The evening will start at 6.30pm with a hot vegetarian buffet and continue until around 9pm.


Since 2015, schools and local authorities have had a legal duty to have due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism. This is known as the ‘Prevent Duty’. There has been some uncertainty among parents and communities about what is involved, and recently some further strong criticisms of Prevent have been voiced (eg https://talkradio.co.uk/news/governments-prevent-strategy-has-had-chilling-effect-communities-says-director-rights-watch-uk ). Now, the government has agreed that there should be an independent review of the working of Prevent ( see https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2019/jan/22/prevent-strategy-on-radicalisation-faces-independent-review . So this is an important time for this Community Question Time to take place.


The event on the 21st will be the second in a series that Faiths Together in Lambeth is running at various venues to provide opportunities to engage about Prevent with the staff delivering it in Lambeth. You will be able to ask questions about Prevent, discuss concerns you might have, and make any suggestions for future events in the series.


By way of introduction, the Lambeth Prevent staff are Rupert Sutton (Prevent Programme Manager) and Lydia Nixon (Schools Prevent Officer).

 

Do join us on the 21st if you can, and please pass on this invitation to others in your communities and networks. Replies will be helpful for the catering.
