County Line Teens


County Lines is where illegal drugs are transported from one area to another, often across police and local authority boundaries (although not exclusively), usually by children or vulnerable people who are coerced into it by gangs. The ‘County Line‘ is the mobile phone line used to take the orders of drugs.

Young men  join a gang by either committing a crimes or undergoing an initiation procedure wherein fellow gang members to test their courage beat them and asking them to commit murder and selling drugs.
Identity or Recognition – Being part of a gang allows the gang member to achieve a level of status he/she feels impossible outside the gang culture.
Protection – many members join because they live in the gang area and are, therefore, subject to violence by rival gangs. Joining guarantees support in case of attack and retaliation for transgressions.
For the last 4 years, our organisation has been working with school and  young girls that the school have identify that this young girls may have the potential to join gangs or they are in a gang. Our organisation works with the schools and training and supports the young girls and young adult men to become ambassadors in their schools and in the community.
