Barnardo's Missing from Home Service

All young people aged 18 years and under who go missing from home or care in Middlesbrough are referred to the service by the police and Wellbeing, Care & Learning.

Barnardo's Missing from home service aims to undertake an initial assessment (Pre CAF) to children and young people up to the age of 18 years who run or go missing from home or care. During this process young people and their families are offered and encouraged to access and engage with multi-agency support tailored to their needs to reduce and prevent any further missing from home episodes.

The service user groups are children and young people and their families from 3 to 18 years of age utilising 'Think Family' models, pre CAF and full CAF (Common Assessment Framework) assessments and direct individual child centred intervention, including education sessions to groups within schools and care settings.

For more information about CAF click on Common Assessment Framework in the left hand column.
