In November 2020 Act Early’s new website was launched to help families and the public spot the signs when a loved one is being led down a path towards hatred and extremism. The site is accompanied by a national advice line that provides direct access to Prevent specialists who are trained to guide people through the process of sharing concerns about a person at risk.
