The APL is grateful to be able to continue its support of worthwhile causes and, alongside its nominated charity of the year, donations are given to other charitable causes through the year as funds are available.

Missing People is the only charity in the UK dedicated to bringing missing children and adults back together with their families. As a lifeline when someone disappears, Missing People offers a free, confidential, 24-hour helpline to support missing children and adults, and their loved ones: helping them to explore their options, to get a message home, to get to a place of safety and, where possible, to find a safe way to reconnect.

For the estimated 250,000 people who go missing each year in the UK and their families left behind, Missing People is a much-needed lifeline.

The £5,000 kindly donated by The Association of Property Lenders will enable Missing People to get one step closer to doubling the number of people directly helped to 20,000 each year by 2022, with a focus on those most vulnerable people. Without such generous donations, highly vulnerable people would not be able to receive the support they so desperately need, at the darkest of times imaginable.

In practical terms, this donation could fund 50 publicity appeals for missing children and adults; could fund emotional support for 30 families for an entire year; or could help train 10 volunteers to take calls on Missing People’s dedicated 24-hour helpline.

Speaking about this kind donation, Jo Youle, CEO of Missing People said: “Heartfelt thanks from me, the Trustees, staff, volunteers and all those we help, for choosing Missing People as one of the charities benefiting from your support this year. We simply could not continue to be there for all those who need our specialist help without the kindness and generosity of supporters like the Association of Property Lenders and we look forward to developing our relationship further.”
