Adult safeguarding guidance - safeguarding, extremism and Prevent
Vulnerable adults may be susceptible to recruitment into violent extremism by radicalisers.
Violent extremists often use a persuasive rationale and charismatic individuals to attract people to their cause. The aim is to attract people to their reasoning, inspire new recruits, embed their extreme views and persuade vulnerable individuals of the legitimacy of their cause. If you are a professional and identify possible concerns in this area you should seek advice from their manager and review the detailed guidance in this document.
Further advice can be sought from the adult safeguarding unit
