How we're protecting the UK

We are responsible for protecting the UK from the threat of terrorism, and we work hard to keep you safe.

The UK faces a severe threat from terrorists, who wish to disrupt our lives and kill as many people as possible. Across the country, thousands of dedicated people are working together to keep you safe, and to allow us all to live free from fear.

The government's approach is comprehensive, proportionate, fair and, above all, effective.

The Home Office is the lead department on the government's counter-terrorism strategy.
