We depend on you to be a lifeline.

A child goes missing every five minutes in the UK. 

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 and adults to safety. Thanks to you, families of missing children know everything possible is being done to find their missing loved one.

Share the joy of payday by making a gift to Missing People through payroll giving.

Payroll Giving is a fantastic way to help us be a lifeline when someone disappears.

Not only is it one of the most simple ways for you to support Missing People, but it is also the most tax effective as donations are deducted before tax is paid. For example, when you donate £10, only £8 will come out of your salary and the taxman pays the rest. If you're on a higher tax rate (40%) - it's even better! Only £6 will come out of your salary, and the taxman will pay the remainder.

When you give from your salary each payday, you will be helping us to be a lifeline when it's needed most to missing people and their families.

And the best part? Because we know how much and how often you are donating, we will be able to plan ahead and make sure that your gifts are being put to the best possible use.

Set up a donation from your salary

Here's what you could help us acheive over the course of a year through payroll giving:
