Help Missing People by playing People’s Postcode Lottery

People’s Postcode Lottery is doing amazing things for good causes. Since 2005 the players of People’s Postcode Lottery have raised over £246.2 Million for charities, including an incredible £4 Million for Missing People. That’s because 30% of the ticket price goes directly to charities like ours.

We’re so grateful that generous funding from players of the People’s Postcode Lottery helps us to be a lifeline when someone disappears, and to support thousands of individuals and families affected by a disappearance.

In the last year we:

  • Supported over 3,000 families of missing people

  • Shared over 5,000  publicity appeals for over 2,000 missing people

  • Helped over 1,600  young people and children through the helpline and face-to-face interactions

Without support from players of People's Postcode Lottery we simply would not be able to be here, 24/7, to suppor missing children, adults and their families. Thanks to players, we can be there for those who need us the most.

How it works

Players buy a subscription for £10 a month, giving them multiple opportunities to win. Only playing postcodes are entered in the draw, meaning guaranteed winners every day.
