Event description
The term ‘county lines’ is becoming more widely recognised and used to describe situations where young people may be internally trafficked for the purpose of criminal exploitation. What is often less understood is the experiences a young person faces and the potential for them to be harmed through various forms of abuse and exploitation as a result.
This conference aims to address some gaps in knowledge and offer suggestions for supporting young people who are at risk of, or being trafficked for the purpose of criminal exploitation. The conference will -


Provide an overview of the current issues


Raise awareness and understanding of vulnerabilities and warning indicators


Improve confidence in reporting concerns


Provide practical tips to overcome barriers to engagement
