star this property answer text <p>Since the Prime Minister’s Extremism Task Force (ETF) made its recommendations in December 2013, we have made considerable progress in tackling extremism and <br>reducing the risk of radicalisation. This Government has excluded more hate preachers than ever before, and has regularly disrupted events which feature extremist preachers. We have restricted access to online terrorist material, the majority of which is hosted overseas: since December 2013 we have removed from the internet over 32,000 pieces of unlawful terrorist-related content, taking the overall total to over 51,000 since 2010.</p><p>We have seen a significant rise in referrals to our multi-agency safeguarding programme, Channel, which provides tailored support to people identified as at risk of radicalisation, including from Islamist extremism. The Association of Chief Police Officers reported a 58% increase in the past year. Since April 2012 there have been over 2000 Channel referrals. Hundreds have been offered support under the programme.</p><p>We have made progress with our ‘Workshop to Raise Awareness of Prevent’ (WRAP), a training tool which teaches frontline workers how to identify and support those at risk of radicalisation. Since the revised Prevent strategy (June 2011), we have trained over 100,000 frontline public sector workers to identify and support those at risk. We are currently rolling out new, updated training.In the 2013/14 financial year, Prevent practitioners in our 30 priority areas worked with over 250 mosques, 50 faith groups and 70 community groups. We have delivered over 180 community-based Prevent projects since 2011, and are currently supporting over 70. All of our current Prevent projects are focused on the current threat, including Syria and Iraq. Since early 2012, these projects have reached over 45,000 people.<br><br>In September the Home Secretary announced that the Home Office will now assume responsibility for a new Extremism Strategy. The strategy will aim to build up society to <br>identify extremism, confront it, challenge it and defeat it. It will cover extremism in all its forms, including Islamist extremism.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Since June 2011, Prevent has funded over 180 projects in priority and supported areas. Around a third of these have focused on schools and supplementary schools – protecting children from extremism and radicalisation. Local Authority Prevent Co-ordinators brief head teachers, teachers and safeguarding leads in schools and regularly provide training to frontline staff.</p><p>There are currently seven local authorities who have created specific posts dedicated to working with schools funded by the Home Office. Where these projects have been delivered, areas have reported an increase in teachers’ confidence in identifying and dealing with extremism. The Home Office is working closely with the Department for Education to keep our approach under review and ensure that we are doing all we can to safeguard children and young people.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The security of the British passport is paramount. Preventing and detecting fraud is one of Her Majesty's Passport Office's (HMPO's) key objectives and in 2013-14, of 9,033 cases of fraud were detected.<br><br>The British passport is one of the most secure documents of its kind. Working with national and international law enforcement agencies, HMPO continues to monitor and review the security of the document in order to prevent and detect fraud both, domestically and overseas. This includes introducing a range of automated system checks; increased interventions with applicants who report their passport as lost or stolen on multiple occasions; and an enhanced facial recognition system. HMPO will also continue to interview all first-time applicants as a means to confirm identity of new passport applicants.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>In May 2014, the Government amended the regulations governing right to work checks to prevent illegal working in the UK. This followed a public consultation on ways to strengthen and simplify controls on the employment of illegal workers and to make it easier for law abiding employers to conduct checks. The changes included reducing the range of documents for checking purposes, with a greater reliance on more secure and current forms of documentation.</p><p>Since May, endorsements, including those for indefinite leave to remain are therefore required to be in documents which have not expired. This is to enable us to replace insecure immigration documents with secure biometric residence permits. Individuals whose documents are no longer valid may make an application to the Home Office to upgrade their older form of immigration documentation.</p><p>Employers are only required to conduct a check at the start of employment for those individuals with no restrictions on their permission to be in the UK. Where that individual has made an application to the Home Office because their document has expired, the employer may contact with the Home Office’s Employer Checking Service to verify that the person has the right to work and therefore employment can commence without delay.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
