EPIC is part of Doncaster Children’s Services Trust and has been tasked to support vulnerable young people who are at risk of becoming exploited by criminal gangs and young people who are at risk of becoming involved in offending behaviour.

EPIC has recently developed two innovative intervention programmes funded by the Home Office focused on engaging and informing young people on how to tackle the inherent risks associated with Child Criminal Exploitation (CCE) and the world of so-called ‘County Lines’.

The programmes are a virtual reality experience and a drama production to engage with 10-17 year olds. In addition, a range of learning packs (traditional workbooks and educational videos) will be promoted across secondary education settings and available to commissioners.
