Volunteering through work for Missing People

Lisa West is Research & Insight Manager at Primesight, one of the biggest outdoor advertising companies in the UK and a key partner of the charity. She joined the Missing People Communications team for a day's volunteering a few weeks ago to share her skills and insight with the team.

"I had the wonderful opportunity of joining the Missing People marketing team for a day’s volunteering work and through this experience gathered lots of insight into not only how the charity help the families of missing people but also how it offers a fantastic support service for those that go missing. So much of this charity is reliant on volunteers, so it was great to hear that the opportunity for remote work is growing across the organisation. (Especially for those busy in their own full time/part time jobs).

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 www.missingpeople.org.uk.
