ABOUT

Our mission is to create awareness for the individuals and issues, provide emotional and practical assistance, foster community-wide support, and advocate to decision-makers towards achieving greater understanding for the rights, hopes and needs of families and friends.
We launch creative initiatives that humanise missing loved ones, engage the public through strategic communications, empower families with opportunities and specialised supports, and educate the public on associated issues, like ambiguous loss.
We establish partnerships with stakeholders in industries that heighten visibility for the missing and alleviate the practical and emotional burden on those left behind.

Our vision is for every Australian impacted by missingness to have access to the support they need.
