#LookCloser is a partnership campaign between The Children’s Society, 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 challenge stereotypes of victimhood, highlighting that child exploitation can happen anywhere, and any young person can be a victim.

The Children’s Society has released the latest version of the #LookCloser digital pack. There are some new additions to the pack including a new ‘pledge’, a briefing for businesses, stickers, business cards and some refreshed content. The briefings included in the digital pack details the steps you can take to support the campaign and spread awareness of child exploitation and abuse.
