Freedom of Information Request

Children missing from care

Received: 14 July 2021

I am currently looking for up to date statistics that can show me the current situation for children going missing from care settings. Particularly, those who are at risk from things like CSE, county lines, or suffering from mental health issues.

I would like to submit a Freedom of Information Request. Listed below:

1. Please could you provide me with the number of young people in your area who've gone missing from either residential or foster care settings in the last twelve months.
2.
3. Within this, could I have a breakdown of risk assessment at episode level and also how many children had a marker for mental health, CCE, CSE, suicide or self-harm risks.
4.
5. Please could you also provide me with the number of young people not in care in your area who've gone missing in the last twelve months.
