SPACE is a not-for-profit organisation responding to the national scourge & prevalence of COUNTY LINES (Child Criminal Exploitation) which has seen thousands of children & young peopleexploited & entrenched into organised crime, serious harm & violence.
SPACE offers a unique perspective of County Lines stemming from law-enforcement & lived experience.
The training will cover the following outcomes:
-Personal story triggering and testing every possible professional response and intervention;
-County Lines indicators, gaps and challenges, as well as best practice approaches;
-Relevance of missing episodes, what happens during and after, and how can we improve responses;
-The relevance of the National Referral Mechanism under Modern Slavery legislation (County Lines is child criminal exploitation; which is human trafficking);
-Types of children targeted in the grooming process, and how, including vulnerabilities and pull factors;
-Challenges in the secure placement setting (often proposed as a solution to persistent missing);
-Need to treat parents (particularly where protective factors) as partners in child and young people's exploitation and safeguarding.
