I am impressed by the outstanding management team and the great work that the charity is doing in these difficult times for so many vulnerable people. I am looking forward to the opportunity to bring my experience of the charity sector gained from many years working with the October Club to help Missing People extend the great impact it is having in this important area.”
“incredibly passionate about raising awareness of, and funds for, the charity – helping to reduce the number of children and adults who go missing in the UK on a daily basis”.Karen has two young children. So when she is not running around after them, she is either at work as an HR Manager at Moore Capital Management, watching football (an avid Aston Villa fan), playing tennis or hockey, cycling or running.
“It still shocks me that someone is reported missing every 90 seconds in the UK. Missing People is the only charity offering a lifeline when someone disappears, giving practical guidance and emotional support to bring vulnerable missing people home safely. It really is impossible to convey the breadth of their work in a single statement. I have been a Patron since their earliest days and am constantly impressed by their tireless and impactful work”.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed my time as Chair and working with the Fundraising Board and the fantastic team at Missing People. I know Mark will do an excellent job in leading the Board and I look forward to helping him and the charity where I can in the future.”
“I am a big fan of Missing People: not only what it does, but the way it does it with humility and humanity. I have supported Missing People since 2015, both on the fundraising board, and by providing pro-bono work through CIL.”
"I've long been supporting a number of charities that work on alleviating homelessness. I am proud to now be part of the Fundraising Board of Missing People, as I see the organisation working at a level where it can keep people from becoming homeless - or more generally, 'falling through the cracks of society' - in the first place."
“Missing People is a fantastic small charity- punching well above its weight on a national level. Its mission of finding those missing and supporting those families left behind has become all the more important this year due to the financial and mental impact of Covid-19.”
“When MD at Palmer and Harvey I met Missing People when searching for a good cause to support. When the team, including one of the parents, told me of their work I was humbled and amazed. I could not understand how they coped with such a major issue without closure. I understood how they coped as I learned more about the fantastic support they get from the brilliant team at Missing People. The search for the missing people whilst supporting those left behind is truly amazing. The unique support is critical and expensive which is why I am focussed on doing whatever I can to raise the much needed funds to develop this support further. The country would be so much less without the dedicated work of all at Missing People, the families of the 176,000 people that go missing each year would be left to fend for themselves. Truly inspirational people that deserve the best support possible.”
“As a Trustee and Fundraiser, I’m endlessly inspired by the work of the entire team at Missing People. The range of issues tackled are broad and complex - but they are matched perfectly by the limitless commitment and transformative impact of the charity’s teams helping individuals, families and stakeholders."
" Missing People has a tremendous impact in its area of focus, supporting those who go missing through helplines and direct contact, supporting the families of those who go missing and campaigning on issues relating to missing people. The Missing People team, led by Jo Youle, are fantastically energetic and effective. I have been a supporter of Missing People since 2011 and was a founding member of the Fundraising Board. I am very proud to support this wonderful charity.”
