PACT (Parents & Abducted Children Together)
Every year hundreds of thousands of children around the world go missing or are abducted. Some are forcibly separated from one parent by the other; some are abused; and others simply disappear, never to be found again. PACT was created to help ensure the protection of these children and provide on-line advice and support to victims and their families.
MATCH (Mothers Apart from Their Children)
MATCH offers non-judgemental emotional support to mothers apart from their children in a wide variety of circumstances, including parental abduction.
The UK Missing Kids Website is a unique, state-of-the art tool designed to help the police recover missing and abducted children. It is a partnership between the Police, charities, and the private sector.
