Missing Young People

Young people who have run away from home are in a particularly vulnerable position.

The Youth Support Team are contacted by the police when a young person aged under 18 is reported missing in Gloucestershire. And through our Missing Persons Scheme, we work with missing young people themselves, to help find solutions to their problems.

How we can help
What we can offer includes:

  • Independent Return Home interviews, to explore the reasons for a young person going missing, and to look at what needs to happen to prevent further episodes
  • Working with young people for up to six weeks, on the issues that led to them being reported as missing

Who we help
We work with young people up to the age of 18.
