#LookCloser is a partnership campaign with the National County Lines Co-ordination Centre and the British Transport Police, aiming to raise awareness of child exploitation and abuse, with a particular focus on public spaces. The campaign also seeks to highlight that child exploitation can happen anywhere, and any young person can be a victim.
Despite the government lockdown and social distancing measures being in place, young people are still being groomed, exploited and abused. We’re encouraging everyone to consider focusing on the public spaces which are still open and where exploitation may be most visible to the public. This could include parks, supermarkets, transport, banks and online environments like gaming and social media platforms.
