By remembering Missing People with a gift in your Will, you are making a unique and special commitment. Your legacy to Missing People will help us continue to be a lifeline when it's needed most.

When somone goes missing it can be the worst day of their family’s lives.  And, every year, 186,000 people go missing in the UK. Of these, more than 130,000 are children and young people.

Twenty years ago, our founders saw first-hand the real need for specialist support for families of missing people, and since then we have become experts in the field. Our helpline is open 24-hours a day, all year around, offering a vital lifeline for families of people who have disappeared and missing people wanting to reconnect with their loved ones. Every year, we reconnect thousands of adults and children as well as provide hundreds more families of missing people with on-going specialist support.

For those who go missing, we offer a free, confidential lifeline by phone, text or email 24/7 to help them find safety. For their families there is a pain that won’t end until their loved one is found. We never give up on either of them. 

Your legacy will help us continue the work of our founders Mary and Janet as we support those who are facing some of the most difficult times of their lives. 

Leaving a gift in your Will is a highly personal and very special gift. It is up to you whether or not you inform us of your intention to leave us a legacy gift. However, knowing about your legacy will help us plan ahead and will enable us to keep you in touch with our work.

By leaving a gift in your Will, you will be a lifeline for a lifetime. A legacy donation is one of the most effective and long-lasting ways you can help Missing People. Your pledge of support is sincerely appreciated.
