Missing People

We are a lifeline when someone disappears. We are caring and highly trained staff and volunteers working in collaboration with partners across the UK. For those left behind, we provide specialised support to end the heartache and confusion and search for their missing loved one. We operate a 24 hour helpline service and we help to cite searches and find those who go missing.

What would I be doing?

* Being part of cheering squads for our amazing runners and cyclists at events

* Helping at organised community events like Pride marches and our Carol Services

* Organising events in your community like bucket collections, bake sales or concerts

Who would this role suit?

This role is perfect if you’d like to be active in your community and want to support our vital cause. You’ll need to be motivated by making a difference, be reliable and willing to get stuck in. Being a good communicator with a non-judgmental approach are also essential.

Why choose this role?

We’re the only charity providing free, confidential support for children and adults thinking about leaving home, or are already missing, and their families left behind. As a small charity, we urgently need support to raise funds and awareness so we can continue providing a lifeline to anyone who needs us. Your contribution would be so valuable to this.
