NCVO A Day in the Life

This blog post was written by Lucy Holmes, Research Manager at Missing People

The NCVO A Day in the Life work-shadowing scheme enables civil servants and staff from the charity sector to spend a day with one another. My aim in taking part was to learn about how the Home Office works – its structures, teams, hierarchies, roles, priorities, culture and staff.

Around 250,000 people go missing in the UK each year. 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
