Manifesto for Missing People

Improving support for vulnerable missing children and adults and those left behind

Police respond to more than 300,000 missing person reports a year in the UK – one report every two minutes. Whilst most people who go missing are found quickly, several thousand each year are not.

Missing People has produced this Manifesto to highlight priorities for the next government to safeguard vulnerable missing adults and children, and to improve support for those left behind. We hope it will influence policy and provision for these people, and will be promoting it to politicians, the government, and other decisions. You can read a copy of the Manifesto for Missing People here

In this section, you can find out about the Manifesto for Missing People's calls, and how you can support it to help improve the lives of runaway children, vulnerable adults and their families.
