Find Every Child Week

Find Every Child Week aims to raise awareness of the 80,000 young people who go missing in the UK each year, and to raise funds to enable the charity to continue offering round the clock support to the families desperate for news of their child.

Thanks to support from:





Andrew was just 14 when he disappeared.

He was last seen nearly 150 miles from home, alone in London. His parents, Kevin and Glenys, have been desperately searching for him ever since, their one hope that one day he will return home, safe and well. 

Sadly, Andrew's story is not unique. In fact every 2 minutes, a child is reported missing in the UK.

As you read this, there are thousands of missing children who are alone, terrified and vulnerable to harm and exploitation. 

Every child deserves to get home safe. We urgently need your help to protect them.

A regular donation of £3 could help us reach out to 10 missing children by text message each month.

Will use our police approved service to send a vital message into a child’s hands soon as they are reported missing. Our supportive message will explain to the missing child how they can contact us to speak to one of our trained helpline advisors.

Text SAFE now to 70660 to donate £3 a month from your mobile phone*

Last year, over 1,500 young people responded to our police approved text service which enabled them to receive the vital support they require. However, demand for our services have doubled in the last three years.

With your donation, we will be able to reach out to even more in a high risk situation.
