On the 15th of July, our Education and Wellbeing Officer ran a workshop on County Lines for a group of our local foster children.
This course was run in response to some of our foster carers being alerted by a local school regarding County Lines problems within the Upton Upon Seven and the Malvern areas.
Helen’s workshop covered information about how County Lines works and the effects it is having on children, young people and their families.
Helen gave a realistic insight into the issues having recently worked in a Pupil Referral Unit, which included working with young people who were members of County Lines Gangs.
If you have any concerns or would like any further information on County Lines, please don’t hesitate to contact us at Foundation Fostering.
