Reducing the Criminalisation of care experienced children and young adults in Wales: A Practical Toolkit for Professionals – Missing People

This toolkit aims to turn the principles in the All Wales Protocol: reducing the criminalisation of care experienced children and young adults into practice. We hope it will be used extensively as a resource to train and support multi agency colleagues working with care experienced children and young adults.

National Charity Missing People in partnership with Llamau and consultant Claire Sands were commissioned by the Children’s Commissioning Consortium Cymru (4Cs) to develop this toolkit.

As part of this project, we consulted with over 65 children and young adults who are care experienced. Their views have shaped the content within the Toolkit and we thank them for their views.

Please share with your colleagues to raise awareness of this valuable resource. This toolkit is available in Welsh or English. You can select your language preference via the dropdown menu to the right of the search bar.
