Westminster Insight’s timely County Lines Digital Workshop will provide practical insights on how best to prevent, disrupt and support victims of child criminal exploitation and county lines.

This workshop will explore the prevalence and scale of child criminal exploitation in county lines activities and how best to identify and protect vulnerable children, deploy effective interventions, and prevent revictimization. We explore how local and national partnerships are working together to prevent victims falling through the gaps in support.

Gain actionable advice from leading practitioners on how to map, identify, and respond effectively to exploitation and county lines by first exploring and expanding our understanding of county line – is it a gang-related issue? Is it a safeguarding issue? Are the concepts and terms we use doing more harm than good? You will learn how to identify exploitation, escalate support appropriately and develop best practice in intelligence-led policing and child protection responses.

Join us to understand the, challenges, and solutions to developing multi-agency services, programmes, and interventions in collaboration with local and national partners. CIRV will also expertly share how others can apply aspects of their innovative interventions and “trust” based systems to any other internal or external services delivered in isolation or in partnership with stakeholders.
