And you could save a child's life

ACT NOW and support Child Rescue Alert

When a missing child’s life is in danger, every second counts. But you don’t need to be a superhero to save the day.

Child Rescue Alert is the potentially life-saving system that alerts people to high risk child disappearances.

The initial hours after a child goes missing are crucial. A sighting by a member of the public can lead to the safe recovery of the missing child.

When a Child Rescue Alert is issued, it is sent directly to thousands of people though text, email, app notifications, social media, digital billboards and national media. This means that many more eyes and ears are on the ground, on the lookout for the missing child. 

When a missing child’s life is in danger, every second counts. But you don’t need to be a superhero to save the day.

Child Rescue Alert is a nationwide system, run by the National Crime Agency, the charity Missing People and technology company Groupcall which has the potential to save a child’s life in the event that a child is missing and believed to be at imminent risk of serious harm or death. Registration is free and takes just minutes to complete, online or by text. By taking 30 seconds to register, anyone could save a child’s life.
