Missing People and St Giles Trust SOS have been jointly funded by the Home Office to deliver a project which scopes and tests new ways of working with young people who are criminally exploited to become drug mules. This project will test a Missing People-led pilot of an intervention – called SafeCall.
SafeCall is a scheduled telephone call to children who are referred to us by professionals working with them. They will be offered a non-judgemental, safe space to talk about their experiences in confidence. We will reassure them that there is a way out, support them to explore their choices, and help them formulate a safety plan.
The SafeCall service will also reach out to the child’s parent or carer, offering them a chance to debrief, access emotional support and be guided on how to keep their family safe in the future.
