Tackling criminal exploitation (Children's Society)

The Children's Society, along with many other organisations, are working to disrupt the activity of criminal gangs and keep young people safer. They work with the police to stop county lines activity and recognise the young people that have been exploited by criminal gangs as victims, not criminals.

The Children's Society has developed resources for parents and professionals if they are worried a young person is involved in county lines.
