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.

In addition further detail about what the police will require from you when reporting a child missing can be found on this link Report a missing person | Avon and Somerset Police

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.
