Our community of people who have lived experience of missing

Around 1 million people are affected by a disappearance every year.

People worried about someone who has gone missing, and people who have felt the need to go missing themselves. We offer a unique space to share advice, support each other, and meet in person or virtually. We provide opportunities to contribute time, share expertise, and support the charity and wider cause.
