Dear Wandsworth Borough Council,

I am a research student at the London School of Economics,
currently researching about the British counter-terrorism
programme. At the moment my focus is on the Prevent Programme in
London, and I was wondering if you could help me get some
information I need. Specifically, I would need to know:

1 - The Prevent Budget for this Council
2- A list of organizations, societies, activities that receive
Prevent funding in the areas covered by the council. And 3- how
much money they receive.
4- Any action plan, or report on the Prevent programme that is not
readily available by the council website.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Yours faithfully,

Maria Carolina Werdine

Yours faithfully,

Freedom of Information Act request - 2010/3495 - Prevent Programme

I refer to your request for information relating to the Prevent Programme
received on 21^st May 2010.

In this you asked for the Prevent Programme for the Council, a list of
organisations, societies and activities that receive funding, how much the
funding is and any action plan which is not readily available on the
council website.

Please find attached the local Prevent action plan which was agreed last
July 2009 by the Councils' Corporate resources Overview and Scrutiny
Committee and a similar version agreed by the Wandsworth local strategic
Partnership in July 2009.

The Plan sets out the local programme of Prevent funded activity with the
covering report providing details of the funding agreed. Please note that
comparatively, Wandsworth has received a lower level of funding than other
Inner London Boroughs. The majority of Prevent activities are delivered
through partner agencies and existed targeted projects.

An update on prevent activity and future developments is currently being
prepared, however the council and local partners are still awaiting
confirmation of Prevent funding for 2010-11. The Coalition Government has
made a number of commitments which may impact on the future funding and
development of Prevent. These developments are being carefully monitored
and at present it is unclear whether the Prevent programme will continue
in its current form.

I hope this information meets your needs. If you do not understand the
information provided or wish to discuss anything further, please feel free
to contact me and I, or another member of the team will be able to assist
