The Scottish Government Serious Organised Crime Taskforce’s Divert group, whose focus is to divert people from becoming involved in serious organised crime and using its products, is currently organising a conference on child criminal exploitation. The event is aimed primarily at practitioners who might encounter criminally exploited children in the course of their work. The conference is designed to raise awareness of how children and young people are exploited by organised crime groups, and to help practitioners recognise the signs of exploitation, to provide better outcomes for young people at risk. The programme is still being finalised at this stage, but will feature a keynote speech from Maree Todd MSP, Minister for Children and Young People. The conference is being held at the Insight Institute in central Glasgow, on 28 November 2019.
