Look Closer for signs of abuse

Last updated by Stephanie.Rosser@essex.gov.uk on Thursday, October 14, 2021

#LookCloser is a partnership campaign between The Children’s Society, British Transport Police and the National County Lines Co-ordination Centre.

The campaign aims to raise awareness of child exploitation and abuse, with a particular focus on public spaces – spaces that young people frequent and exploitation may be more visible.

#LookCloser wants to teach people about the signs of exploitation. If we learn how to spot the signs we can help keep young people safe.  

#LookCloser also seeks to challenge stereotypes of victimhood, highlighting that child exploitation can happen anywhere, and any young person can be a victim. Find out more at The Children's Society.
