Supporting children who repeatedly go missing from care

Join our free webinar on our newest training ‘Supporting children who go missing from care’

Missing People has been working with The Care Experienced Movement to create new training for children’s residential care providers, including semi-independent providers. We have also been developing a range of other support that we can offer to providers, including helping you to be Ofsted-ready.  

 

We are really excited to be holding a launch event for the training on Tuesday 5th December from 11am-11:50am and showcasing the new products we will be offering to help you as care providers deliver high-quality support for missing children. You will have the chance to ask us questions and our event will be grounded in lived experience.
