Over recent years the burgeoning ‘County Lines’ phenomenon has generated significant attention and concern, becoming a priority issue for the police and other agencies. Posing as a ‘wicked problem’, the involvement and exploitation of vulnerable populations and the appropriation of local’s homes in a practice known as cuckooing presents multiple, often unique challenges for responses that seek to be effective and appropriate.

This free seminar will discuss the mechanics of this drug supply methodology, the associated harms and the implications for the commissioning of public services. Speakers will include practitioners experienced with working with affected populations and academics conducting research in the area. Discussions will be based around their experiences, providing insight into the challenges and complexities of the issue.

Key areas to be explored will include: responding to involved young people; engaging with those experiencing or at risk of ‘Cuckooing’; effective multi-agency strategies and safeguarding.
