Serious and organised crime toolkit. This toolkit was developed by the Home Office, in partnership with the police and the voluntary sector, to provide information for practitioners working with young people to help them:
- understand why young people get involved in serious and organised crime
- understand how organised criminals operate
- spot risks and identify when young people need support
- help young people at risk to access the support they need
The toolkit can be used as the basis for interactive sessions with young people, aged 11-18.
