The Missing and Exploitation Team works closely with partner agencies across the Safeguarding Partnership to ensure timely and appropriate intervention for children and young people missing or at risk of exploitation in Walsall. 

The Missing and Exploitation Coordinator role is diverse and offers a true ‘no day is the same’ experience. This role will require someone dedicated to partnership working who has experience of working within the field of exploitation and trafficking.

  • Collating, managing and noting morning exploitation triage on a duty basis.
  • Supporting Missing Workers by sharing information and allocating Return Home Interviews for children and young people.
  • Attending meetings as needed to support workers and families to understand issues relating to exploitation and support multi-agency safety planning that is victim focused.
  • Sharing information and supporting disruption planning that is perpetrator and location focused.
  • Answering queries in a shared duty inbox, providing support to the wider workforce to recognise exploitation and report concerns.
  • Building a knowledge base of local groups/gangs/county lines active in the area and supporting police colleagues with information sharing around this issue.
  • Providing support and feedback to colleagues that submit the ‘Walsall All Age Exploitation Assessment’.
