County lines: Girls under the radar in drug gangs

Founder and CEO Abi Billinghurst is quoted in a recent BBC article on the experience of young women, gangs and county lines.

Young women speak about their experiences of being groomed and exploited, witnessing and experiencing extreme violence.

Abi makes the point that “there are a vast number of young women who go unrecognised, under the radar. They’ve always been involved; it’s just nobody’s ever looked under the stone to find out.”

We’re proud to be part of the MOPAC pan-London service Rescue and Response, supporting Londoners under 25 affected by these issues.
