The Return Home Interview Team is a small team of trained workers who offer the opportunity for every young person reported missing in Sheffield to speak to them. They are an independent team and try to uncover information that can help protect children from the risk of further missing episodes, from risks they may be exposed to whilst missing or from risk factors in their home or local community.

A good Return Home Interview can:

• Provide understanding and address the reasons why a child has run away.

• Identify harm that may have occurred whilst the child was away.

• Allow professionals to identify actions to address and prevent further risks.

• Help children feel safe.

• Provide children with information on how to stay safe.
