Prevent Tragedies is a website which was created because of the increasing concern about the worrying numbers of young people who are putting themselves at risk by travelling to Syria and other conflict zones and to help the numbers of families that have been torn apart by fear when their loved ones travel. The website has contributions from women from communities, charities, public sector organisations and Government departments.
The website has recently launched a short film on the topic of ‘Left Behind’, which describes the devastation caused to families whose loved ones have travelled or attempted to travel to a conflict zone abroad. Left Behind focuses on the accounts of four police Prevent contact officers who have supported families from across the country and witnessed first hand the anguish they go through as a consequence of a family member’s actions.
