Online anti-radicalisation programme to be rolled out.

Online anti-radicalisation programme to be rolled out.

An online programme aimed at preventing young people being radicalised is to be rolled out across the country.

The Home Office is backing the development of the programme, designed by the University of Kent, which will be used in schools from 2018.

Behind Closed Doors uses real news footage and simulated social media-style clips to highlight the dangers of grooming for radicalisation.

It explores subjects including far right extremism and terrorism.

The programme follows the online social media life of 15-year-old Maryam and her sisters, and the online and personal relationships of Joe, 20, and his family.


Both stories focus on grooming processes and what to do to help safeguard the young people.

Participants will be asked how the characters are being groomed.
