CHILD CRIMINAL EXPLOITATION
The Family Solutions Service and Thames Valley Police have put together this great video to highlight the growing problem around County Lines (often Drugs related) Exploitation in Oxfordshire. This has been something some of our students have reported happening to them in the past. As it states in the video.
Child Criminal Exploitation is when an individual or group takes advantage of an imbalance of power to coerce, control, manipulate or deceive a child or young person under the age of 18. It is a business and children are being used to sell drugs and make money for older individuals at the top of the line.
Parents have told us that they are worried about their sons/daughters being open to exploitation and have asked for our help in the past. If you are worried about anything in relation to this video please know that you can talk to any of the teachers/staff at Meadowbrook College and be reassured we will listen and try to help you.
