MISSING CHILD: RETURN INTERVIEWS
To meet the requirements of RMFHC (Runaways and Missing from Home and Care) Protocol, Platinum Care Consultancy is able to provide Independent Return Interviews for children and young people following a missing episode.
These provide an opportunity to uncover information that can 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.
For children in care placed outside their local authority, it can often be a challenge for Social Workers to visit with the 72 hour required period after their return to undertake these. It can also be a challenge to identify a professional who is truly independent but also has the necessary skills and understanding of the complexities of children and young people going missing to undertake this role.
Our fully vetted Consultants who undertake these visits have undertaken Kent Safeguarding Children’s Board’s training - Undertaking Effective Return Interviews Level 2. They also have the necessary skills, training and experience to engage with children and young people when carrying these out.
These are undertaken in line with Kent Safeguarding Children’s Board procedures which include using their documentation, the process of the interview and notification procedures after they have taken place. This ensures your practices are consistent with local procedures.
We can offer flexible visiting times to suit the needs and wishes of the children and young people.
Please email your enquires to our Directors at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 07899 916908 for an informal and confidential discussion about your service needs.
