Missing People is a charity. We depend on you to be a lifeline.

A child goes missing every five minutes in the UK.

These children often face abuse, sexual exploitation and violence while their families desperately search for them, hoping and praying they will come home safely.

We need to do everything we can for them and their families during the most difficult time of their lives.

By supporting us, you are helping bring missing children, young people and adults to safety every day. Thanks to you, families of missing children know everything possible is being done to find their missing loved one. You are showing them that there are people in this world who care.
