Children: Care Homes

Volume 492: debated on Tuesday 12 May 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what recent representations he has received on making information on the location of children’s homes available to police forces; and if he will make a statement. (274180)

The Secretary of State has not received any representations on making information on the location of children’s homes available to the police.

Children’s homes are required to notify the police where a child from the home has been involved in a serious incident. The home is also required to have effective protocols in place that involve the police for instances where children go missing from care.
