This research project, jointly conducted by UK charities Missing People and Catch 22, explores the links between gang involvement and young people going missing. Based on a survey of professionals (police, social services and charities), data from Missing People’s database, interviews and focus groups with professionals, young people and family members, the research explores the nature and extent of the link, and identifies areas of good practice. This paper will outline the key findings, including the common ‘push’ and ‘pull’ factors, the current situation in the UK, and recommendations for future research, policy and practice.
