ACT Early Netmums Digital Partnership Partners Toolkit | Counter Terrorism Policing

ACT Early Netmums Digital Partnership Partners Toolkit


CT Policing will be launching an eight week digital partnership with Netmums on Tuesday 6th July 2021 to promote ACT Early ( among mothers.

ACT Early aims to encourage family and friends to share concerns about a loved one being radicalised. This will be the first ever digital partnership focused on supporting Prevent’s work.

By focusing the partnership on reaching mothers, rather than family members more broadly, it will enable us to create the best possible campaign for that audience, tailoring content to them and their specific needs and concerns. Netmums is an established and trusted brand with a strong presence among mothers.

ACT Development Background

The website and collateral materials has been developed by the CTP Campaign’s team with input from a range of partners, including: academics, OSCT, Department for Education, Department for Health and Social Care, Local Authority Prevent Coordinators, and families who have been involved in Prevent and had loved ones radicalised. The website, messaging and creative concepts have also been tested with the public through focus groups and website user testing.

We are grateful to all who have contributed to the development of ACT Early.

Following extensive consultation, the ACT Early website will aim to be a source of practical advice, support and guidance for those who have concerns. It will promote case studies, signs to spot, and details on how to make a referral. The tone will be empathetic and concerned, with a clear focus on safeguarding. The website also explains the police’s role in this safeguarding space and features Q&A’s directly addressing the barriers we have seen through extensive research and focus groups.

We have avoided an overly police-focused look and feel so it appeals and encourages family and friends to reach out for help. To reflect the multi-agency nature of Prevent, the website will clearly signpost to other partners and agencies for support and advice.
