Evaluation of Cambridgeshire Safer Relationships for Exploited Children (SAFE) Team – County Lines Pathfinder (March 2021)

Summary:   Attached is further information and evaluation of the Safer Relationships for Exploited Children Team Project (SAFE). 




The Safer Relationships for Exploited (SAFE) Children Project provides a service to children, who are known to the youth offending team and who are at significant risk of criminal exploitation or moderate risk of criminal exploitation who are identified as high need, across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

The project offers children a trusted and consistent worker who supports them, using a trauma informed model of intervention that supports those children to understand their previous and current experiences, to gradually make steps towards positive plans for the future.  The team works with the children and their families to help them recognise risk and develop safety plans to prevent the risk of exploitation and serious youth violence in the future.
