If you’re concerned about someone, it’s important to keep an eye out for changes in behaviour that could indicate they may be vulnerable to violent extremism. The earlier a shift in identity or behaviour is recognised the better the chances of diversion and disengagement.
Early community action is key to helping people avoid the path to violent extremism. As a friend, family member, acquaintance or community worker, you can make a big difference because you may be most likely to notice changes in someone’s behaviour.
