Return Home Interviews
"I found the visit very useful and we received great feedback and support, during the visit and afterwards."
The interview is an in-depth conversation with the child or young person.

£85.00 per visit plus travel.
During our visits to Homes across the UK, we have noticed recently that lots of you are struggling to meet the regulation on return home interviews, through no fault of the Home.
With this in mind and In line with ‘Statutory guidance on children who run away or go missing from home or care’ (January 2014), Grahams Consultants have increased capacity with our consultants and are in a unique position to provide both trained Independent Return Interviewers and Advocates to meet with children and young people within 72 hours of their return, at a very competitive price.
The interview is an in-depth conversation with the child or young person. It provides an opportunity to hear about why they went missing and to understand the risks and issues faced while they were missing. Interviews can uncover information to help protect children from the risk of going missing again, from risks they may have been exposed to while missing or from risk factors in their home.
We are in a position to offer this service for £85 a visit/interview plus a flat rate travel cost dependant on area. As we know that lots of children go missing together and this can then become quite costly we are happy to link these visits by charging £85.00 for the initial interview with the first young person and £45.00 for subsequent interviews with young people on that same visit.
( This will not be your Regulation 44 Inspector)
We also offer an Advocacy service as a 1-2-1 or a Monthly Drop in session.
