Gwent Missing Children Hub praised for collaborative working, 30/03/16 [W]

The Gwent Missing Children Hub brings together health workers, social workers, police officers and educational representatives to respond to the 300 children a month who go missing or run away from home.

The project, established in 2013, promotes a coordinated way of sharing information and enabling professionals to assess the risks missing young people may be vulnerable to. A report, commissioned by the Welsh Government on behalf of Gwent Police, found that the project is achieving its aims and thereby improving the outcomes and lives of children who go missing, as well as safeguarding against and reducing the number of missing children episodes.
