About Prevent Tragedies

This website was created because of the increasing concern about the worrying numbers of young people who are putting themselves at risk by travelling to Syria and other conflict zones and to help the numbers of families that have been torn apart by fear when their loved ones travel.

The website has contributions from women from communities, charities, public sector organisations and Government departments. We aim to work together to help keep our loved ones safe, to try and address the numerous issues and sign up to the resolution to Prevent Tragedies.

We want to appeal to family members to share their concerns so they can access the help and support they need to protect their loved ones.

Our Resolution to Prevent Tragedies

We care deeply about the well-being of women and girls throughout the world. We reject the degrading treatment of women by terrorist organisations. We seek to prevent the tragedies caused by it.

We declare that women and girls should not be subject to forced or bogus marriage, rape, held in slavery, denied education or encouraged to put themselves and their children in danger. Men and women who do these things to others are to be condemned.

We resolve to work together and would like to invite others who want to work with us to join us to end the malign influence and abuse that diminishes the potential and lives of women.
