Section 26 of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 places a duty on certain bodies, including Higher Education establishments such as Darwin College, to have ‘due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism’.

To comply with that duty the College has formed a PREVENT Committee to complete the necessary work required to ensure the it is is compliant.  The Committee is chaired by the Vice Master and includes the Dean, the Domestic Bursar and the President of the DCSA.

In accordance with the Government’s PREVENT Guidance, the Committee has conducted a Risk Assessment and has restated and produced a number of policies to mitigate those identified risks.  The current policies are: 

Dignity@Study Guidance

Freedom of speech policy

Policy for display of posters

Policy for meetings on College premises

Staff, Fellows and Students PREVENT Training Policy

In addition, the College produces reports to HEFCE:

Master’s report to HEFCE 31st July 2016

PREVENT Annual Report as at 3rd April 2017

If you have any queries about PREVENT, please contact in the first instance the Domestic Bursar.
