Young People Going Missing

One in ten young people and children go missing, usually multiple times, twenty times the average and they often experience significant harm.

To keep young people safe, agencies and professionals need to be proactive to help prevent missing episodes. Reporting them as missing to the police does not resolve the reasons or reduce the recurrence as to why they were not where they were expected to be.

Every effort should be made to prevent a young person or child from going missing in the first place and this course aims to improve these experiences.

Our Young People Going Missing training analyses the levels of intervention model, alongside exploring the use of a contextual safeguarding approach.  We also consider the dynamic risks involved to work with local agencies, and the young person’s family and carers, about what needs to change to reduce these episodes in future.
