Call for evidence by inquiry into safeguarding absent children

Submissions of written evidence sought by 22 January 2016

The All Party Parliamentary Group on Runaway and Missing Children and Adults is inviting interested individuals and groups to submit written evidence to its current inquiry into how the police, children's services, schools and other professionals safeguard children who are categorised as 'absent' from home or care or education.

The inquiry is intended to examine how the introduction of the 'missing' and 'absent' categories has affected the safeguarding response to children who run away.

The deadline for submissions of written evidence is Friday, 22 January 2016.
