The Missing People charity invited Zac Goldsmith MP back to their national office, based in Zac’s Richmond Park & North Kingston constituency, to meet their team and to show him some of the new services the charity now offers.
Missing People now provide local services for children who return from being missing, a National Reporting Line for young people to anonymously report concerns about sexual exploitation, and have become the delivery partner for the National Crime Agency to deliver Child Rescue Alerts issued when a child is missing and their life is in danger.
Missing People is the only charity in the UK dedicated to bringing missing children and adults back together with their families. They offer a lifeline to the 250,000 people who run away and go missing each year in the UK, providing practical and emotional support to missing people and their families on their free, confidential and 24hr helpline, supported by players of People’s Postcode Lottery. The charity also provides publicity for missing people and campaigns for the rights of missing people and their families.
Zac said “I’m very glad to see Missing People have been able to continue and expand their extraordinary work in the years since I first visited them. They provide a hugely important role in helping reunite missing people with their families and keeping children safe. They are a credit to our community and our country, and I will continue to support them in their endeavours however I can.”
