Ian - Fundraising and Communications


I joined Missing People for a variety of reasons. I had personal experience of missing as a close family member ran away twice when I was growing up. I also suffered from depression myself and seriously considered running away a few times. I wanted to help people in a similar situation to get the support that they needed.

Volunteering and then working for Missing People, and being in such a friendly and supportive environment, has played a major part in my own recovery from depression. It has also brought greater meaning to my life and given me greater perspective too.

I honestly see people going the extra mile every day. Whether it’s someone on the helpline supporting a caller and helping them through the darkest of times, the media team ensuring that the appeals for missing people reach as far and wide as they possibly can, the policy and research team producing ground-breaking research and creating genuine change via parliament (such as the recently approved Guardianship Bill) or the staff, volunteers and fundraisers who cycle across the country, run marathons or do bucket collections.

I consistently feel proud to work at Missing People (see above for some of the reasons!), there are so many compassionate people all pulling together to do all they can to help missing people and their loved ones. On a personal level, I feel proud whenever a publicity appeal helps to ensure a person is found safe and well or enables them to get access to the support that they need.
