Not In Our Community: Grooming and Exploitation
Key Stage 2, Key Stage 3, Key Stage 4, Higher Education
Developed with young people, Not In Our Community means working together to protect against grooming and exploitation. This website contains education resources for year 6 students and above. Includes county lines materials
Children as young as six are being forced to carry and sell drugs far away from their homes. They are made to skip school, sleep in drug dens, keep secrets from their loved ones. They are treated as criminals when they often feel trapped in a hopeless situation.
County Lines (Fearless)
County Lines is a very serious issue where criminal gangs set up a drug dealing operation in a place outside their usual operating area. Gangs will move their drug dealing from big cities (e.g. London, Manchester, Liverpool etc.) to smaller towns in order to make more money. This can have a really big effect on the community who live there and bring with it serious criminal behaviour.
Not In Our Community
Developed with young people, Not In Our Community means working together to protect against grooming and exploitation. Not In Our Community is developed and continually improved with young people, including survivors, to help us protect ourselves and friends from grooming and sexual or criminal exploitation. We co-produce resources and stories based on real life events for use on social media and in schools / other groups where young people hang out. Our approach telling it like it really is helps thousands of young people understand how grooming and exploitation works so that they can better protect themselves, spot the warning signs amongst friends and know who they can go to for help.

Talk to Frank
Home Office Minister Lord Henley said ‘There are so many ways for young people to get information on drugs: through their friends, the internet, TV programmes, films and song lyrics that knowing what’s true and where the dangers lie can be difficult. It is important that young people know that FRANK will always give them free and accurate information and confidential advice whenever they need it.
The Five Pathways
The Centre for Social Justice (CSJ) is best known for its major ‘Breakthrough Britain’ reports, which identified the five Pathways to Poverty – family breakdown, educational failure, worklessness, addiction and crime, and problem debt and housing. All of these pathways to entrenched poverty are interconnected and many of those trapped in poverty have experienced more than one of these problems. Through its work in each of these areas the CSJ seeks to move the poverty debate away from a simple fixation with a single ‘poverty line’ and instead look carefully at the lives of those living in poverty and what can be done to change those lives and eradicate poverty for good.
