Preventing vulnerable young people from being exploited and recruited by organised crime groups

 Home > our current priorities  > vulnerable young people


"Through effective partnership working and information sharing with statutory and voluntary agencies, we will work together to prevent young people being exploited and victimised in connection with serious organised crime. "


 Undertake further research and scoping to ensure we do not duplicate any work. Areas of investigation include missing young people; young people currently being supported by the youth offending team, targeted youth support and family key work teams. The outcome of the Home Office Ending Gang and Youth Violence Peer Review will assist with this and provide us with some multi-agency recommendations moving forwards.

Work with partners to understand more about the following areas:
  • Why young people get involved in serious and organised crime
  • How organised criminals operate
We will also work with partners to identify and develop ways in which we can:
  • Spot risks and identify when young people need support
  • Help young people at risk to access the support they need
