Child Exploitation - MARVE

Child Sexual Exploitation and Child Exploitation

In response to identified national and local trends concerning the multi-faceted nature of child exploitation and adolescent risk including but not limited to County Lines, Knife Crime, Trafficking, Gangs and Groups. AFC in partnership with the Met Police and KRSCP have streamlined and established a new Multi Agency Risk & Vulnerability panel that will consider children at risk or vulnerable to all forms of child exploitation. The new panel is called MARVE and is similar to developments across London Boroughs.
