Four years of county scheme marked

Evesham Editorial 1st Jul, 2023   0

A WORCESTERSHIRE wide approach to identifying, tackling and protecting children and young people experiencing or at risk of criminal exploitation has celebrated its fourth birthday.

Get Safe works across communities to disrupt and pursue the perpetrators to look out for the signs of radicalisation, online child exploitation, urban street gangs and knife crime.

Over the past year, the Worcestershire Children First Get Safe team has achieved many successes such as winning the Team Excellence Awards 2022.

The Get Safe partnership has continued to work together and is committed to raising the public’s awareness of knife crime within the community through the anti-violence Bee and Knife Angel.

Tina Russell, chief executive of Worcestershire Children First, said: “The focus of this year’s campaign celebrates the important work the Get Safe Partnership is doing whilst showing how to spot the indicators of child exploitation, how to report it and how to access information and support.”

It includes West Mercia Police, Worcestershire Children First, Worcestershire County Council, a range of NHS health services, education, youth justice services, housing, probation and Early Help services.




Key voluntary sector agencies are also alongside Get Safe to tackle child criminal exploitation.
