County lines: criminal exploitation of children and vulnerable adults

Brings together documents and promotional material related to the government’s work to end criminal exploitation.


Promotional materials

The Home Office is undertaking a range of work to raise awareness of what county lines (and associated criminal exploitation) is.

This promotional material has been developed to support frontline staff, letting agents and landlords understand the signs to look for in potential victims, and what to do about it. These materials support the cross-government approach to ending gang violence and exploitation.
