Catch 22 looking to protect young people from County Lines exploitation

June 11, 2023 | by Chris Boyd


Catch 22 County Lines Support and Rescue Service is protecting young people at risk of exploitation through County Lines in the four most prevalent areas – Merseyside, London, West Midlands and Greater Manchester.

The service, funded by the Home Office until 2025, provides dedicated caseworkers who complete an assessment of needs, goals and aspirations and develop bespoke plans of support for each individual.

The service also looks to reduce additional risk factors through its dedicated Mental Health case worker and Women and Girls case worker.

Catch 22 also offer a ‘Rescue Service’ between 9am and 10pm, 7 days a week, for young people who have been found outside of their police force area in an exploitative situation.

The Rescue Service returns young people to a safe place and offers ongoing support.
