Course Description

As children spend increasing time at home isolated, lonely, and struggling with their mental health, they quickly become vulnerable to being pulled into and exploring a dangerous world perceived as offering potential opportunity to them. A large majority of at-risk children are turning online and are becoming vulnerable to perpetrators wishing to expose and involve them in grooming, gangs, crime and anti-social behaviour, sexual exploitation, and drug running across county lines.


How can we, the church and frontline community mentors and workers, support our communities facing this crisis? How can we support vulnerable families and communities following an intense period of the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown during which many young people spent high numbers of hours unsupervised online? In which ways can we build strong relationships with at-risk children, just as those gangs and the perpetrators are doing?
