A Project launched and monitored by Missing Children Europe
More than 58% of the cases received by our 116000 hotline network concern runaways. These children face physical and mental health problems, and are at risk of homelessness, sexual and criminal exploitation.
Early signs that children are at risk of running away are often missed or ignored.
In April 2020, Missing Children Europe will start the RADAR programme to collect best practices in preventing and responding to running away, to provide training, and to advocate for better policies to protect children at risk.
The money raised by the 2020 golf day will contribute towards the production and videography for an online course for teachers, social workers, police and hotline operators across Europe to learn how best to respond to children (at risk of ) running away.
We warmly thank you for your contribution.
