Working With Young Women & Girls Affected by Gangs & County Lines

This 3-hour webinar is for anyone working with girls and young women who have been affected by gangs and county lines.

Delivered by practitioners from Abianda, a London based social enterprise that works with young women affected by gangs and county lines, and the professionals who support them.

You will explore the stereotypes, myths and barriers girls and women and face when accessing support around this challenging aspect of safeguarding and child protection.

You will also examine what best practice should look like when you are working to support young women and girls affected by gangs and county lines.

To be able to participate in this webinar you must have the following:
  • Access to a computer, or laptop.
