The team, Norfolk’s Children Advice and Duty Service, have been operational since October 2018 and we are now looking to expand the service and require a Consultant Practitioner who will be responsible for supporting the development and continuous improvement of Norfolk’s response to children and young people who go missing from home or care, to enable appropriate activity that supports a reduction in risk and vulnerability.
