We depend on your donations to be a lifeline.

Someone goes missing every two minutes in the UK. 

By supporting us, you are helping us to bring missing children and adults to safety and to support their families desperately waiting for news.

Pay less and give more to fund a search for a missing person.

Payroll Giving is a fantastic way to help us be a lifeline when someone disappears.

Not only is it one of the most simple ways for you to support Missing People, but it is also the most tax effective as donations are deducted before tax is paid. For example, when you donate £10, only £8 will come out of your salary and the taxman pays the rest. If you're on a higher tax rate (40%) - it's even better! Only £6 will come out of your salary, and the taxman will pay the remainder.

When you give from your salary each payday, you will be helping us to be a lifeline when it's needed most to missing people and their families.

And the best part? Because we know how much and how often you are donating, we will be able to plan ahead and make sure that your gifts are being put to the best possible use.

Here's what you could help us acheive over the course of a year through payroll giving:

 a month could help reach out to 14 vulnerable missing people by text each month

 a month helps provide practical and emotional support via telephone to people in crisis

 a month helps us respond to one Textsafe a month, reaching out to vulnerable missing people in crisis
