Kirsty - Development and Partnerships
My role at Missing People is working with children, young people and their families who have been affected by missing episodes as a result of gang involvement and county lines. Working at Missing People has been a complete game changer for me personally – to work in an environment where everyone is so dedicated, positive, supportive and friendly is really inspiring.
There are so many teams here at Missing People - working on different projects and services. Everyone here at Missing People has different experiences (personal and work-based) and when you get talking in the staff room on a lunch break you end up learning new things every day.
