Reported Prevent concerns are referred to the Surrey Police Prevent Team who undertake a preliminary assessment and discuss the referral with partners to decide if an intervention is necessary.

If an intervention is deemed necessary Surrey's Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) will convene a Channel Panel. The Channel Panel consists of professionals from a wide range of organisations such as:

  • Police

  • Education

  • Health and Social Care

  • Faith sector

  • Housing

The Channel Panel will devise a support package which may focus on a person’s vulnerabilities around health, education, employment or housing, as well as specialist mentoring or faith guidance and broader diversionary activities. Each support package is tailored to the person and their particular circumstances.
