Schools join week of action against child exploitation

A new short film has been chosen to launch of a week of action against child exploitation in Greater Manchester.

Blurred Lines, which was commissioned by Rochdale Borough Council and Oulder Hill School, tackles the topic of county lines and organised crime.

It's accompanied by a resource pack for schools across the area which will help teachers spot the signs of exploitation.

Organisers say the campaign’s powerful imagery will highlight how children can be misjudged or stereotyped because of their behaviour, who they socialise with or the clothes or make-up they wear.
