Radicalisation and extremism
What it is and how to report it
Radicalisation is the process through which an individual or group develops extreme political, social or religious beliefs.
Violent extremism is when a person or group uses fear, terror or violence to try and achieve change.
If you are worried about a friend or loved one and feel they may be going down the wrong path, speak to someone who can help you to help them.
