Become part of our Safeguarding Briefing Network

Our Safeguarding Briefing Network (SBN) play a vital role in helping to find missing people across the UK. If you are part of a public facing agency or organisation, with safeguarding, support or community protection at the heart of what you do, join our SBN today to help make missing people safer.

What is our Safeguarding Briefing Network?

Our SBN is comprised of various agencies and organisations across the county. This can be any agency with a safeguarding or community safety role. Examples of agencies involved with our SBN are youth centres, homeless shelters, social services, and food banks.

We can send missing person briefings to these agencies for them to share confidentially with their volunteers and staff. The missing persons briefings are not to be shared with the public.

Why do we need the Safeguarding Briefing Network?

Sometimes public facing publicity can be harmful to the missing person and it could cause them distress. For example, it may not be safe to launch a publicity appeal for a missing person escaping domestic abuse.

In cases where public facing publicity is not safe, our SBN ensures that the missing person is still being searched for. We will only send you missing person briefings for people that we think might access your service and when we have reason to think they might be in your area.
