Diverting children and young people from Serious and Organised Crime (SOC)

Scotland’s Serious and Organised Crime (SOC) strategy has four strands – Divert, Deter, Detect and Disrupt.  The Divert strand has a significant focus on children and young people, and aims to prevent their exploitation by SOC and provide opportunities to divert them from such involvement. In order to do this, greater awareness and understanding of what may increase the risk of being exploited by SOC is crucial. This information for practice aims to increase awareness and knowledge to prevent or divert children and young people from being exploited by SOC.
