Multi-Agency Child Criminal Exploitation Team Approach in Norwich: A Review – County Lines Pathfinder (August 2021)


Attached is the dissemination proforma for the review of the Norfolk Child Criminal Exploitation Team approach. 


The Child Criminal Exploitation team pilot, which ran from August 2018 to September 2020, was a multi-agency pilot based in the Norwich area of Norfolk. The team was established in response to a growing number of children being identified as criminally exploited through the county lines business model, and the recognition of a need to employ contextual safeguarding and provide more robust multiagency support for exploited children.

The co-located team comprised staff from the Norfolk Youth Offending Team, Children- Services and Norfolk Constabulary. Their remit included both the delivery of direct case work, and the development and delivery of multi-agency CCE training across the county, which was informed by practice experience.

Following the closing of the pilot, the team have completed a lessons learned from co-located multiagency CCE Team in Norwich, Lesson learn presentation and further recommendations which looks at some key points to consider when implementing such a team.
