unstar this property answer text <p>Since 2012, over 1,300 people have been supported through the Channel programme, which is part of the Prevent Strategy. Channel exists to provide confidential and voluntary support to people who are vulnerable to being drawn into terrorism. Many types of support are available, addressing educational, vocational, mental health, and other vulnerabilities. Ideological mentoring is common</p><p>In 2017/18 there were 7,318 individuals referred to Prevent. Of these, 6,356 (87%) were male, and 947 were female (13%). Of all those referred, 3,197 (44%) were referred for concerns related to Islamist extremism, and 1,312 (18%) were referred for concerns related to right wing extremism.</p><p>We do not routinely collect data on the nationality of those referred to Prevent. A Channel panel will, on a monthly basis, monitor the progress of an individual in receipt of Channel support. When the panel decides that a person has no further terrorism-related concerns they will leave the Channel programme. Of those who were provided with support through Channel in 2017/18, 84% left the programme with no further terrorism-related concerns. Support to address particular non-radicalisation related concerns could continue in some cases and would be managed outside of the Channel programme</p><p><br>People in receipt of support from the Channel programme but who drop out may be offered alternative forms of support by the local authority or other providers. In these circumstances, any risk of terrorism that they might present will be managed by the police.</p>
