Yesterday we were extremely lucky to welcome in Peel Entertainment who delivered an assembly and workshop around child criminal exploitation organised through Barnsley Early Intervention and Prevention Team.

The assembly and workshops were co-designed by young people who have shared their lived experience and seek to highlight the risks and vulnerabilities young people in society face in relation to child exploitation in particular to drug and county lines related activity. They were produced to highlight the realities of these risks for young people and to help provide them with the awareness, resilience, and tools to make the right decisions in the future.

All the actors involved all commented on the outstanding behaviour of every group which was exemplary throughout.
