A part of this included a conference held on 11th March 2020 which brought together representatives from the Police, Health, Local Authority, Faith Groups, Community Groups, Youth Groups, Parents and Young People.
Hosted by TDC and the Brighton Streets project, we heard a keynote speech from SPACE, an organisation spreading awareness of Child Criminal Exploitation (CCE), plus contributions from a number of organisations, including:
- Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC)
- Brighton & Hove City Council departments
- Audio Active
- Make Good Trouble
- Fresh Youth Perspective
We are pleased to be able to share with you a full conference report, including feedback and recommendations, as well as a collection of resources from the day. Please see below:
SPACE - Stop & Prevent Adolescent Criminal Exploitation
Our Keynote speaker was from SPACE who spoke about the devastation caused by County Lines and the oft ill-equipped professional response. Their NPIES project (National Parents as Partners in Exploitation Safeguarding), was set up in December 2018 to take next steps forward through quarterly meetings with the government and more than 50 key partners. You can learn more about the NPIES project here, read a blog about it here and find the group's key lines of enquiry here.
