Drugs, County Lines & Exploitation

Cost - FREE for enhanced members & essentials members and £59+VAT for non-members

We understand how challenging it can be to prevent children becoming involved in what may exploit them; causing lasting harm and trauma. Even more so, how to intervene, disrupt and safeguard them when they are embroiled.

This course prioritises ‘understanding’, with focus on what creates the risks, how to spot this evolving and what to do with what you know.

Attendance will leave you better informed & better prepared, with enhanced confidence to respond.
