Running Away - case study videos and lesson plans

Following a consultation with over a hundred young people across West Yorkshire, the Leeds Safeguarding Children Partnership (LSCP) and West Yorkshire Police have developed two case study videos on the subject of running away. The videos show the stories of two teenagers and what happened when they were reported missing.

These videos, along with a lesson plan, are now available to all teaching staff who work with teenagers, to explore the topic of running away in a structured session. The purpose of the lesson is to:

  1. Explore the factors that lead a young person to consider running away
  2. Analyse the risks of running away
  3. Signpost to supporting services.

The lesson plan can be used to deliver to a group of young people, or on a one to one basis.
