It can be hard to know what to do if you’re worried someone close is expressing extreme views or hatred, which could lead to them harming themselves or others.
There are many factors that can make someone vulnerable to radicalisation. They can apply to any age, social class, religion, ethnic or educational background.
Spotting the signs:
– An obsessive or angry desire for change or ‘something to be done’
– Spending an increasing amount online and sharing extreme views
on social media
– Personal crisis
– Need for identity meaning and belonging
– Mental health issues
– Looking to blame others
– Desire for status, need to dominate.
– Being influenced or controlled by a group
If you or anyone else is in immediate danger, you must contact the police by calling 999.
