A One Day Course
County lines activity and the associated violence, drug dealing and exploitation has a devastating impact on young people, vulnerable adults and local communities. It involves using children as drugs mules (carrying drugs for others), children being trafficked within the UK, the young people being trapped by drug use (dependence), debts owed to the gang leaders and or the threat of violence. The young people can be drawn in through the allure of money, kinship and status, and do not recognise they are being groomed (often by other young people) or recognise their exploitation by others. The glamour and exciting soon turning to isolation and fear.
