Vulnerability to Radicalisation Week 2022

Vulnerability to Radicalisation Week 2022

What is Vulnerability to Radicalisation Week 2022?

Vulnerability to Radicalisation (V2R) Week is a national campaign of action to encourage local authorities, key partners and communities to work together to prevent those who are most vulnerable in our communities being drawn into terrorism. The week commencing Monday 26th September is Vulnerability to Radicalisation week here in North Yorkshire

During V2R week our colleagues at CTPNE are giving various inputs that Officers, staff and our partner agencies may find beneficial in order to fully understand the signs to be aware of and what to do if you have concerns, alongside awareness of other, more traditional safeguarding risks such as Domestic Abuse, Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) or County Lines.

What do we mean by ‘Vulnerability to radicalisation’?

‘V2R occurs when a person, as a result of their situation or circumstances, may be drawn or exploited into supporting terrorism or extremist ideologies associated with terrorist groups.’

The York and North Yorkshire Prevent Partnership Board, will utilise this week, Monday 26th September – Friday 30th September, to promote key message, share resources and raise awareness on how to support and protect those who are vulnerable to radicalisation in North Yorkshire and the City of York.

As part of this #Vulnerability2Radicalisation has been developed for use during Vulnerability to Radicalisation Week 2022.


The table below shows a schedule for the week including links to sessions, suggested social media posts and activity to support key messages throughout the week.
