Children in Wales is looking to engage with children and young people who have lived experiences of running away/going missing from home or care. We would like to talk to them about their experiences and what support they received on their return. This is part of a research project for the Welsh Government, who want to know from children and young people, how they can be best supported to get the right help at the right time, after a going missing episode. An experienced and professional facilitator, who is a consultant with Children in Wales, is leading the research.

We will engage with young people through focus groups, 1 to 1 interviews and via an online survey.  We are able to offer incentives for them to participate in focus groups and interviews.

If you work to support children and young people in Wales who may have gone missing, we would be very grateful if you could ask them to complete our short online survey.  Their input would be greatly appreciated.

The online survey can be accessed here
