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.
Honour the missing, support the families in solidarity and unite key stakeholders.
Fairness, honesty and respect. We rely on experience and expertise to guide decision-making.
Stay true to the originality of the organisation and take pride in our uniqueness.
Everything we do has the purpose of effecting positive change.
We expect hurdles – this is a complex issue that requires cross-sector collaboration – but we never give up.
Loren's unwavering support really helps to keep the hope alive that one day I might find my brother again. MPAN has been such a blessing in my life.
It has been a privilege to witness the incredible and critical work MPAN is doing in the missing persons space. I've been able to access support and educational material that was absolutely vital to the search I was involved in.
Words can’t describe how important having someone to guide us through such an unknown process, who to speak to and what to do to find our loved one is.
MPAN has provided a positive energy and focus for me during my search. It aligns with my own morals and beliefs, that a missing person is more than a one-dimensional face on a poster.
We weren't able to get media attention until we started with MPAN and now at least the public knows he’s missing.
Working with MPAN has made us all feel like we are giving back to our community in a profound and powerful way.
MPAN runs on donations, pro bono and in-kind support
