Delivery of a workshop to increase student awareness of criminal exploitation, focusing on county lines.

What is this service?

Salus offer a workshop called Under the Radar, developed by Loudmouth Education and Training, and delivered by a skilled and experienced Salus practitioner. Loudmouth is a highly respected and innovative Theatre in Education company.

Under the Radar (Mikey’s story) shows students how children and young people are targeted and groomed into criminal exploitation, focusing on county lines, with the aim to increase young people’s knowledge and understanding to potentially affect behaviour change in the future.

Who is it for?

The workshop has been designed for students in Key Stages 3 and 4.

What does it offer?

Under the Radar (Mikey’s Story) is a 40 – 60 minute facilitated PSHE lesson on youth violence and criminal exploitation. It uses pre-recorded drama and facilitated discussion to teach young people about the risks involved in youth violence including carrying a knife and the link between youth violence and criminal exploitation. The character Mikey looks back on how as a teenager he got groomed into running county lines for a criminal gang. The lesson has been carefully structured and designed specifically for secondary aged and college students and links directly with the PSHE curriculum.

Resources provided by Loudmouth are delivered by a skilled and experienced Salus worker to whole classes or targeted groups.

Where is it available?

The service is available countywide across Kent and Medway (fee payable).
