A report on public health solutions to preventing violent extremism in the UK

On 1 May 2019, the Faculty of Public Health (FPH) and Public Health Wales launched a report on public health solutions to preventing violent extremism. It urges public services to work together to tackle the broader risk factors that are often hidden behind discussions about politics, race and religion.

In the first publication of its kind in the UK, FPH and Public Health Wales outline why we must work harder to understand and address underlying issues which promote vulnerability to violent extremism, such as childhood trauma, poor mental health, social isolation, prejudice and inequity.
