People's Review of Prevent

The People's Review of Prevent

The People’s Review of Prevent is an alternative review to the Government Shawcross Review.

This review provides a voice to the people most impacted by the Prevent Duty.
Prevent is described as ‘safeguarding’ children from harms. However, under Prevent, safeguarding is focused on protecting the wider public from children believed to be ‘risky’, rather than protecting children from harms.

Throughout our report we present case studies that show how real these harms can be and the distress they cause to children and their families and carers.


We champion the rights, freedoms and reputations of our clients – we are fully committed to working with integrity and providing the best possible advice and representation to all our clients. Our teams work professionally, economically and creatively at the cutting edge of law, developing it to promote fairness and justice in the legal system and, where we can, in society.
