Like many other third sector organisations, at Catch22 our frontline workers have had to switch to remote working due to COVID-19 isolation restrictions.
This has inevitably changed the way in which we interact with, and support children, young people, parents and carers. As a result of this swift change, we have had to put in place good practice guidance for specifically, return home interviews, that are now being delivered remotely.
As well as this we know parents and children may need extra support and advice on where to get support as they also switch to remote for COVID-19. We have put together a list of helplines, apps, websites and resources that they might find helpful – available as posters for download below.
GOOD PRACTICE GUIDANCE : RETURN HOME INTERVIEWS DELIVERED REMOTELY
It’s always best practice to see a child face-to-face after they have been missing where possible. However, during the Covid–19 crisis, remote delivery of return home interviews (RHIs) might be necessary.
This guidance was drawn up in consultation with Frontline Case Workers, Catch22 Missing Coordinators and Senior Managers, our teams have made their good practice guide available for any other professionals delivering remote Return Home Interviews or to share with their networks.
