Aim of the course

This County Lines training has been designed to help front-line professionals tackle the growing County Lines problem. It centres on four short films which explain how county lines operate. The films illustrate, drawing on a mother’s and young person’s personal experience, how young people are recruited, and associated risk factors to be alert to.


By the end of the course participants will:

  • have increased their awareness of what County Lines is and how it operates.
  • understand the ways in which children & young people are being exploited and how to spot the early signs.
  • have developed their confidence and effectiveness in managing young people engaged with County Lines.
  • developed a more consistent and informed approach to supporting and safeguarding young people.
  • developed an understanding of the relationship between vulnerability and becoming a perpetrator of crime and the potential consequences of this for the young person’s mental health.

Facilitator: Karen Cleaver, Professor of Integrated Care, University of Greenwich
