Missing children

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children – and in particular protecting them from significant harm – depends on effective joint-working between agencies and professionals that have different roles and expertise. Individual children, especially some of the most vulnerable children and those at greatest risk of social exclusion, need co-ordinated help from health, education, children’s social care and preventative services, the voluntary sector and other agencies.

 

The Missing Children Protocol describes how agencies and professionals will work together when a child is missing. It has been developed and adopted by the South Gloucestershire Safeguarding Children Board for the use of all agencies, organisations, professionals and carers with a responsibility to safeguard children in this local authority.
