County Lines: How do we tackle the issues and support young people. Free webinar

Wednesday 3rd February 1300 to 1400

In our next free webinar in our #BBBYouthWelfare series, we will be discussing county lines – how criminal gangs target and exploit young people, what the national picture is, the actions being taken locally to tackle and prevent and how we can #BuildBackBetter as we transition out of lockdown. If you work with young people this is a must attend sessions and a great opportunity to listen to the national and local pictures and to share experiences.

The session will be chaired by Kieran Breen, CEO of Leicestershire Cares, and guest speakers will be:

  • Dr Grace Robinson, Rights Lab Research Fellow in Modern Slavery Perpetrators and Organised Crime, University of Nottingham
  • Donna Smalley, Service manager, CSE and Missing Multi-Agency Team, Leicestershire County Council
  • Robert Buckley, Detective Sergeant, Exploitation Team - CCE Lead, Leicestershire Police

Our ongoing series of #BuildBackBetter webinars focused on Youth Welfare will be running over the coming months, our emphasis is on encouraging discussion amongst participants. The BBB Youth Welfare webinar series is a partnership between De Montfort University through the Social Care Learning and Development Hub, Leicestershire Cares and the LLR Safeguarding Children Partnerships.

The event is open to all.
