SCARPA Prevention & Action

Location: North East

Running away or going missing can be a key indicator of child sexual exploitation.

Remit area: Our targeted support is available to children and young people involved in going missing or at risk of sexual exploitation. We carry out “return home interviews” with children and young people who go missing across the North East. The interview is an in-depth conversation with the child or young person. It provides an opportunity to hear about why they went missing and to understand the risks and issues faced while they were missing. Interviews can uncover information to help protect children from the risk of going missing again, from risks they may have been exposed to while missing or from risk factors in their home. This work is in partnership with children’s social care, Local Children’s Safeguarding Boards; Missing Sexually Exploited & Trafficked groups and Northumbria Police. Our advice is available to all professionals or adults that come into contact with children and young people at risk and Referrals can be made by professionals, parents or by children and young people themselves. Our return interview service is available to Local Children’s Safeguarding Boards, councils and police authorities. If you are a professional seeking one-to-one advice, or want to discuss our training offer and how it can be tailored to your organisation’s needs, please ask for one of our team leaders.
