This series of three courses from Level One to Level Three will explore and give you a greater understanding of county lines, the connection between county lines and gangs, exploitation within county lines, who is at risk and the indictors that a child may be the victim of county lines.

At the heart of this programme is the aim that professionals gain deeper understanding of what county lines is, the abuse that takes place within this space and be alert to the dangers. The programme will cover some of the theories that underpin county lies including contextual safeguarding, street capital and social fields theory, so that we can really have a holistic understanding of what children and young people are facing on a daily basis and consider how best to help them.

Written by our trainer Kendra Houseman, co-founder of Out of the Shadows, an organisation set up to educate, challenge, and change the way the exploitation of children, young people, and vulnerable adults is discussed, viewed, and understood in the UK.
