The National charity, Missing People has been commissioned by East Sussex County Council, West Sussex County Council and Brighton & Hove City Council to provide a Return Home Interview (RHI) Service and a 1-1 Support Service to children across Sussex from 1st April 2016 until 31st March 2019.

Return Home Interviews will be offered to children who have been missing or absent, and are referred to Missing People via Sussex Police. Return Home Interviews aim to find out why young people went missing, what happened to them while they were away, and what support they need to keep them safe and prevent them going missing again.

1-1 Support will be offered to children who are identified as particularly vulnerable to provide one to one tailored support to help reduce the risk of them coming to harm.
