Making runaways safer

Our report details some of the good practices in place around the country. This ranges from North Tyneside’s runaways’ support officer whose job is to improve their data collection and analysis of missing children, to the development of a hub by Derby City Council, where different agencies sit together and assess the risks posed to each child who has run away. We are keen to continue working with local authorities to further improve the support young runaways receive.
