A campaign to help prevent vulnerable young people in particular from becoming radicalised and drawn into extremism has been launched by East Cambridgeshire District Council.
The 3R campaign stands for “Recognise, Report and Result” and gives partner agencies a simple message about how to support young people at risk of becoming involved in extremist activities.
Partner agencies include secondary schools, Scout and Guide groups, youth clubs, parish councils and other groups working with teenagers and young adults.
The focus is on preventing people from being radicalised before they become involved in any illegal acts. Whilst aimed at all age ranges, the campaign has a major focus on young people.
