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.

Be a lifeline for missing people, all year round - give a regular, monthly gift to Missing People.

More than 250,000 children, young people and adults go missing in the UK every year and, when somebody goes missing, it can be the worst day of the family’s lives. Setting up a regular gift to us is an easy and effective way to really help missing people and those left behind.

Families like ten-year-old Michael’s. He didn’t come home after his Saturday football practice. After 5 hours, and no sign of him, his mum is frantic with worry. It’s dark outside now, and his cold, uneaten dinner is still on the table. She desperately wants to go out and search for him, but at the same time daren’t leave her house in case he comes home.

Your £5 a month could help us answer more calls to our Helpline from vulnerable children, adults and families searching for a loved one.

Your £10 a month will help us support the family of a missing person for an entire year.

Your £20 a month will help us publicise the case of a missing child, helping to reunite families.

Or why not give £3 a month via your mobile phone? It's quick, easy and will make a real difference.
