Missing Children Service

Since January 2015 Open Door has been responsible for completing the statutory missing children return interviews.


When a young person (under 18) under the care of Thurrock Council is reported missing a referral is completed by Thurrock Social Care to Open Door on that young person’s return. Open Door will then contact and offer an independent interview to provide the young person an opportunity to give an account of the missing episode.


A report is then completed with recommendations and sent to the allocated Social Worker who is then responsible for ensuring that the right support is in place to benefit the young person, in the hope that there are no further missing episodes.
