Last night our annual conference, the #FrontlineExChange, continued in Birmingham. At this, the second of three events, our brilliant speakers discussed county lines and extra familial harm. One of our speakers, Petra, shared her own experience with county lines and the impact that it had on her son and family - an important reminder as to why conversations on topics such as this are so important. “I do the work I do because I want young people to have a life that doesn’t hold them hostage to their past. I want social workers to be able to spot the signs and to be able to continue to support children and young people who are affected by county lines.” - Petra McDermott Thank you to everyone who attended and again to our speakers. We now look ahead to our final event next week in London – find out more and sign up by clicking the button below.
