Improving Southwark’s support system for young women at risk of community harm and exploitation
Fulfilling Lives Lambeth, Southwark, and Lewisham, in partnership
with Southwark’s Community Harm and Exploitation Hub, worked
with social sector consultancy NPC to deliver a workshop-based process
using systems thinking tools and lived experience insights to consider the
support system for young women (18-25) at risk of community
harm and exploitation in Southwark.
These workshops ran between October 2021 and May 2022.
They brought together people with lived and learned experiences to
better understand how the system currently operates and how the
system could change to better meet the needs of young women
experiencing multiple disadvantages and at risk of community
exploitation and harm.
This document brings together key learning from these discussions,
suggestions for changes to the current system and examples of
alternative ways of working.
