ECB Missing Child Guidelines
These missing child guidelines are a new addition to the Safe Hands Manual for 2007
A child going missing could be an extremely traumatic event – for adults and for children. However, if everyone is aware of some simple pre-defined guidelines, panic levels can be minimised, and even more critically, the missing child can hopefully be found in an organised and efficient way. Hopefully no child will ever go missing from your team / event. If they do, please remember most children are found within a few minutes of their disappearance.

If a child for whom your club has responsibility goes missing, the following guidelines have been devised to clarify actions that should be taken.
