This is the first in a series of eight workshops to disseminate the key learning from a programme of work across Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire to identify emerging youth justice practice in the prevention, identification and disruption of county lines exploitation. The programme is funded by the Youth Justice Board and concludes in March 2022.
This workshop will be of interest to a wide range of strategic and operational staff working in youth justice, police, children's services and other related professions. It provides an opportunity to hear from from the County Lines Pathfinder team and their external evaluation partners, Traverse Ltd., Duncan Evans from the National County Lines Coordination Centre and Kelly Gray of the Eastern Region Special Operations Unit on the current and changing landscape of county lines activity, and the identified system enablers and barriers to effective practice in the field.
There are over 20 workstreams in the County Lines Pathfinder, the learning from which have been grouped into a series of thematic workshops which will run over two days on the 8th and 10th of February 2022. Participants are invited to sign up to each workshop they would like to attend.
