#LookCloser is a partnership campaign between The Children’s Society, the National County Lines Co-ordination Centre and the British Transport Police aiming to raise awareness of child exploitation and abuse and to encourage the public and businesses to better identify and report concerns. The campaign also seeks to challenge assumptions and victim stereotypes, highlighting that child exploitation can happen anywhere, and any young person can be a victim.
This week of action (beginning Monday 27 February) will focus in particular on the role that everyone can play in disrupting child exploitation and the importance of ensuring that young victims are effectively identified, safeguarded and supported as they transition to adulthood.
Further materials and information on the campaign can be found on the #Look Closer website. To access these you simply need to scroll to the bottom of the page and provide your Job Title, Organisation and Region. Once completed you will be provided with a link to access and download everything.
