Missing from Home & Care
What does Missing From Home and Care mean?
Missing From Home and Care (MFHC) is defined by:
Anyone whose whereabouts cannot be established will be considered as missing until located and their well-being or otherwise confirmed. All reports of missing people sit within a continuum of risk from ‘no apparent risk (absent)’ through to high-risk cases that require immediate, intensive action.
No child should feel alone
The Children’s Society, have produced a short clip to help illustrate the risks children can face when going missing. The clip is centred around children going missing from home at Christmas but this can be applied to wider contexts.
