As part of Worcester Cathedral's vision to be a catalyst for campaigning and raising awareness on issues of social justice, Worcester Cathedral Learning Team in partnership with The Clewer Initiative, Worcester Community Rail Partnership, Platform and Diocese of Worcester Mothers Union have developed a series of County Lines initiatives targeted at young people in KS3/4. The project is called, Interchange.
Interchange uses the arts as the main tool to engage with young people and challenge them to identify ways to disrupt the County Lines chain. Together we have created resources that can be used with young people to raise awareness of the issue of county lines and how to act.
The newly commissioned film Which Side of the Track (running time 12mins 44secs) filmed in Worcestershire is to be used a stimulus to start conversation.
The lessons (each 20 mins) have been created to complement the film looking in greater depth at the issues raised.
The graphic design competition (closing date Friday 16th June 2023) has been designed to give young people the opportunity to creatively express what they believe are the signs that the public need to look for in combating County Lines grooming.
All these resources are available for free use and can be shared copied, and adapted provided attribution is given and they are not used for commercial purposes. Further details of the Cathedral's other activities to end Modern Slavery can be found by clicking here.
