Since August 2019, Missing People have been working to deliver a free programme of consultancy, training and best practice sharing in selected local areas in Scotland to build on the excellent work already being delivered to support missing persons and their families, in line with The National Missing Persons Framework.
In 2019 – 2020, the three areas Missing People were commissioned to work in were Edinburgh, Fife and Dundee. In 2020 – 2021, the three areas were North Lanarkshire, Renfrewshire, and Moray. From May 2021, they will be extending this offer of free support to five additional areas in Scotland.
They will be tailoring support according to current practice and expertise, and specific local need in order to ensure that people at risk of going missing continue to be treated as a priority. We have been working with a number agencies to develop good practice in supporting children, adults and families and this learning will be shared throughout the project.
