Making new friends



“Simple ways to make new friends for charity, and why it really, really matters.”

This Valentine's Day, our CEO Jo Youle writes about her experience making new friends. Jo talks about how these friendships have lead to some incredible support for the charity from lots of brilliant people.

Someone is reported missing every 90 seconds in the UK. The Missing Blog aims to give a voice to all those affected by this issue.

Written by families and friends of missing people, supporters working to raise awareness of the cause, and volunteers and staff at the charity Missing People, we hope that this blog will offer a window into the issue of missing.

The charity Missing People is a lifeline when someone disappears. To find out more about Missing People and ways that you can support the charity visit www.missingpeople.org.uk.
