Why partner with us

Our corporate partnerships

Our award-winning and meaningful partnerships with companies change lives. They ensure that we can continue to be a lifeline for anyone affected by a disappearance.

We know that there are many reasons to create a charity partnership. The most effective partnerships mutually build brand awareness; encourage the sharing of expertise and offer exposure to new audiences. Most importantly, they can help strengthen local ties within communities, motivate and engage staff and deliver tangible support to those who need it most.

Missing People works locally and nationally. This means that a partnership with your company can offer local impact in your communities and across the UK. Our multi-award-winning corporate partnerships team can work with you to create an engaging, impactful and brand building partnership. Perfect for your business and your staff.

Make a difference

At Missing People we love partnerships that make a difference. We work closely with companies to create partnerships that every single employee can be proud of. Our priority is making sure that staff know the impact they are having on the work of Missing People. Without LexisNexis Risk Solutions pro bono software and financial support, our Lost Contact service would not be possible. In the first year of the partnership, we received almost 350 applications. Of those that we traced, well over 50% were located.

During the global pandemic, we saw a 50% increase in applicants to the service and we are taking on more traces than ever.

5 years is such a long time, I really can’t thank you enough. My mum was untraceable and you found her.’ Chamae who used our Lost Contact service.

Engage your staff

‘I spent years selecting the best and most impactful charities for my company to work with. Missing People were always at the top of the list. All Corporates should consider supporting this charity. Staff love the emotional connection and the work they do helps deal with so many related issues.’ Gary Grange, Royal Mail

The idea to partner with Royal Mail with Missing People came from the postman Vincent Micallef. He realised that postmen and women could be the ‘eyes and ears’ in their local communities for high risk missing people. Six years later, over 240 alerts have been issued to over 120,000 postmen and women across the UK.

Bespoke creative partnerships

“The work that the Missing People charity does is life changing for these families and when we had the opportunity to meet with them, we wanted to help.” Will Shu, CEO, Deliveroo

With Deliveroo, we have launched two campaigns to reunite missing people with their loved ones for Christmas and Mother’s Day.

The Ride to Find campaign transformed the delivery bags of Deliveroo riders into mobile billboards publicising appeals for missing people across the UK. In the first month of the campaign live appeals were seen by an estimated 10 million people as riders delivered customers their food. The campaign caught the imagination of both the public and media outlets. The campaign received over 800 pieces of coverage including TV, Radio and 49 hits in national publications. Overall, this accumulated a total reach of over 238 million.

With such a variety and complexity of social issues behind the causes of missing, we can also focus on particular areas that resonate with your company.
