Criminal exploitation is when young people are used by older people or people in gangs or groups, for criminal activity. This includes carrying or selling drugs or weapons, running money, being involved in robberies or hiding things. County Lines is when illegal drugs are taken from one area to another, often into smaller towns and away from big cities.

We do not judge you, or tell you what to do, we can listen to you, offer advice, and help you be safe. We won’t make you tell us anything you don’t want to. You don’t even have to tell us your name or where you are.
