Abstract

We welcome the opportunity to respond to this consultation on 'Working together for people who go missing in Scotland' and value the greater consideration of children and young people in the strategy. This issue is particularly relevant to looked after children and care leavers who are over represented amongst people who go missing. We have significant concerns, based on our research and engagement with the sector, about the causes and consequences of going missing for this group.
