Want to volunteer but can't make a regular commitment? Or can't find a volunteering opportunity with us in your local area? Micro Volunteering could be perfect for you.
You choose how much time you want to give, whether it's a few minutes or a few hours. Here's how:
Share our Appeals
Every day, we post online appeals of missing adults and children across the country. The more these are shared, the more likely that person is to see their poster and know they can contact us for help. Like our Facebook page and share our online appeals or follow us on Twitter and retweet our online appeals.
Sign up to Child Rescue Alert
A Child Rescue Alert (CRA) is activated when a child is known to have been abducted or their life is believed to be at immediate risk. A CRA sends a photo of the missing child to the phones of everyone registered within a certain geographical area. This increases the chances of a sighting of that missing child. Every second counts and your support is vital. Click here to register and forward it on to your friends and family.
Give as you Live
When you register with Give as you Live and make purchases online from selected retailers, they'll make a donation to Missing People. It doesn't cost you a penny. Clever, right? Click here to read more and sign up.

People's Postcode Lottery
People's Postcode Lottery (PPL) is a charity lottery in Great Britain. You play with your postcode to win cash prizes whilst raising money for charities and good causes. For every £2 you spend with People's Postcode Lottery, 30% goes directly to charities like Missing People. And the result? Over the years, PPL players combined have raised a whopping £4 million for Missing People. For more information, click here.
Sign Up a Poster Partner
We display our posters of missing people in public areas (with permission from the police) to help with the search of a vulnerable missing person. Would your local shop, leisure centre, library or cafe be happy to have a poster on their wall? Ask them and sign them up as a Poster Partner. Click here to find out more.
Charity of the Year
Whether you work for a company or study at University, we would love you to nominate us for 'Charity of the Year'. This helps raise a huge amount of awareness and can often lead to vital funds being raised. To do so, contact your Students' Union or Social Responsibility Team to find out more.

Hold a Child Rescue Alert (CRA) Day
A Child Rescue Alert (CRA) is activated when a child is known to have been abducted or their life is believed to be at immediate risk. A CRA sends a photo of the missing child to the phones of everyone registered within a certain geographical area. This increases the chances of a sighting of that missing child. Having as many people as possible registered is vital and you can help with this by holding a CRA Day at your work, local gym, shopping centre etc. Click here to find out more.

Every year on 25 May - International Missing Children's Day - we host The Big Tweet which is an online 24 hour tweetathon where we tweet a different appeal for a missing child every half hour. All you need to take part is a twitter account and, on the day, be on the lookout for the hashtags #FindEveryChild and #TeamBigTweet and retweet as many appeals as you can. Here's more information about the day.
