Professionals Training and Consultancy
At Missing People, we use our skills to provide tailor-made innovative training packages to police, social services and third sector professionals on how to support, safeguard and reconnect young people and adults who go missing and their loved ones left behind.
We have the ability to work alongside you in an advisory capacity on key projects to assess your strengths and weaknesses, review your practice and help redesign your policies.
We are able to provide a national perspective on our experience of working with professionals across the UK to draw upon nationally recognised good practice and deliver up-to-date awareness of new and evolving threats to the most vulnerable people to ensure that selected trainees are trained to provide victims with a variety of practical and support options via communication tools and return home interviews.
