Getting involved with our work by connecting with peers, raising awareness and/or fundraising for us, can be a great way to engage people with the cause and inform more people about the issue of ‘missing’.
It may also provide you with an outlet at what can be a challenging and difficult time. Using your time and energy positively and constructively to help others and raise awareness of the issue can be a helpful way of coping with the situation, as well as making a real difference to the lives of families in a similar situation.
Create a virtual flower in honour of your missing loved one.
This is a dedicated space where you can upload a photograph and family and friends can leave written messages for and share memories of your missing loved one. Others are able to make donations to this special tribute fund.
If you feel you would benefit from connection with others who have been through similar experiences, consider joining the Family Forum. This is a great place for you to meet other families and friends of missing people online, to share and receive support and to get to know each other.
Telling your story may not only be an opportunity to raise awareness of your missing loved one’s appeal, but it could also give hope, strength or encouragement to others by showing them that they are not alone.
If you are interested in sharing your story with us, either for a blog, for use in the media or for our website, please get in touch with us and we can discuss our next steps. We are very happy to share stories anonymously.
By donating, you will become an important lifeline to other families with missing loved ones. There are a number of ways to do this, including simple one-off donations, monthly gifts, and leaving a legacy in your will.
Are you the type of person who likes to push yourself to the physical limit? One way of supporting the charity is to take part in one of our exciting challenge events, or, by using your existing place in an event as an opportunity to raise sponsorship funds for Missing People.
If you have experienced someone you love going missing, you might like to join with others and be part of the Missing People Choir.
We rely on public donations to continue delivering our vital services. If you’d like to join the Missing People community, and use your skills and passion to support other families who are struggling with the traumatic experience of missing a loved one, then perhaps you’d like to organise an event or bucket collection. Our community team are always happy to talk about opportunities, ideas and ways to raise funds.
