What we do

A lifeline when someone disappears

We offer a lifeline to the 180,000 people who run away and go missing each year in the UK.

We listen in confidence, and support missing people and their families to explore their options and, where possible, to reconnect. For those left behind we provide specialised support to ease the heartache and confusion, and help search for their missing loved ones.
