County Lines Conference: supporting children who are missing and criminally exploited'

Missing People presents ‘County Lines Conference: supporting children who are missing and criminally exploited'

Stevenage, Hertfordshire - 19th March 2019

Missing People invites front-line staff and managers to our specialist conference that will be held in Stevenage.

This event is especially relevant for anyone working with children who are being exploited or are at risk of being criminally exploited including: police, social care workers, criminal justice system and voluntary sector. 

We know that young people who are criminally exploited to become drug mules are very vulnerable and are often forced to go missing for days or weeks at a time leaving them exposed to further abuse, violence and other risks while away. Left behind are families and carers who not only face the trauma of ambiguous loss but the worry that their loved-one (or they) will be seriously hurt or harmed.

The conferences will feature a mother who will share her story and lived experience of County Lines and child criminal exploitation. 

Lunch will be provided along with refreshments throughout the day.

There will also be an opportunity to network and learn from representatives from a variety of professional backgrounds. 

Location: Cineworld Cinema, Stevenage, SG1 2AN

Times: 09:30 – 16:00

Course price: £99
