'Educate against hate' urges Government
Educational website www.educateagainsthate.com was launched by the Government in January as part of a renewed drive against radicalisation and the dangers associated with extremism.
The information on this website designed to tackle the "spell of twisted ideologies" will be of interest to everyone but might be particularly relevant to you if you have school or college aged children or grandchildren.
The anti-radicalisation website promises to provide "practical advice to protect children from the dangers of extremism", with information from the government and groups such as the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children.
It includes information on:
- Warning signs of danger
- How parents should talk to children about extremism
- Steps concerned parents can take
"We are contacted daily by worried parents and children themselves on all sorts of issues including radicalisation and dangers associated with extremism…Spotting the signs of such abuse has never been more important if we are to help protect children from sexual exploitation, gang-related activity or other hate crimes." —NSPCC head Peter Wanless
