Missing People’s Impact Report 2021-2022 Published

We are thrilled to announce the publication of our Impact Report 2021-22!

What to expect

Our impact report this year explores how our services support those affected by a disappearance, and how we continue to be a lifeline when someone disappears.

This year, we were able to support 7,455 children, adults, and families across all our free and confidential services. We could not have been there for people in their moment of crisis without our amazing supporters and people leaving gifts in their Wills.

We continued our ‘Is This OK?’ pilot throughout the year, providing confidential, anonymous support to children and young people on the edges of exploitation. Our thanks to BBC Children in Need, players of the People’s Postcode Lottery, Worshipful Company of Information Technologists (WCIT) Charity, Anne Duchess of Westminster’s Fund – and many more – for their backing and belief in this important pilot.

This report also covers the consultancy work that we do, providing training, conferences and workshops for frontline people at agencies responding to missing people and their families.

We have included information around the new and ongoing research we have undertaken. This helps us, and other agencies, to better understand the impacts of going missing. We also published reports to promote change in the response to missing people.
