The Government's Missing Children and Adults strategy recognises the key role of the voluntary sector in providing support to missing children, adults and their families. Delivery of this support is one of the strategy's three key objectives and in addition to the close working between the Home Office and organisations such as the Children's Society and Parents and Abducted Children Together, the Home Office has also provided grant funding directly to the charity Missing People to support the delivery of their 24-hour help line support service (116 000) which missing children, adults and their families can call or text to get access to advice and support.
