Radicalisation and terrorism prevention: apply for funding

Organisations can apply for a share of up to £1.5 million to develop ways of preventing vulnerable people from being drawn into terrorism.

The Home Office’s Office for Security and Counter Terrorism (OSCT) is investing up to £1.5 million in projects that will prevent radicalisation and terrorism.

The aim of this competition is to develop an outcome, resource or new technology. These should build understanding and prevent radicalisation and support for terrorism.

This is a Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI) competition run in partnership with Innovate UK. The competition is part of the government’s Prevent Strategy. It will be funded through the Project Innovation Fund for Prevent.
