Find Every Child Week

It costs just £10 to answer a call from a mother or father missing a child.

Help us spread awareness about this issue of missing this Find Every Child Week. 

Throughout the week of 23rd – 29th of May, we will be sharing case studies, stats and information, and experiences from people with missing children in their own words.

Missing Children’s Day also falls on 25th of May. Please get involved and help us reach even more people than ever before.

What's going on?

Throughout Find Every Child Week, we will be focusing on different issues related to children going missing. We will be sharing content from the reasons why they go missing, to the support they receive when they return, to the agonising heart break of when they don't. Check back here throughout the week to see the day's posts or keep an eye on our socials!

To kick off the week, we will be sharing a video from family members with long term missing children.

Fortunately, 90% of children are found within 48 hours. But for those families still with a missing child, each day without answers is more painful than the last.

On this day, we will be exploring the issue of children missing from care.

There are many reasons children in care run away and we know that they are one of the most vulnerable groups.
