Evaluation of the Grampian Return Home Welfare Interview (RHWI) pilot

Summary

This evaluation examines the operation of Grampian Police RHWI pilot in two pilot areas.  The RHWI has been introduced to provide a more effective response to young people who are reported missing either from home or who are looked after and accommodated. The evaluation has been commissioned by the Scottish Government and is due for completion in April 2010. This is a joint evaluation with Ipsos MORI Scotland and also involves Cheryl Burgess and Fiona Mitchell (Stirling University and Scottish Child Care and Protection Network).
