The Missed Foundation is the only charity of its kind. Run by a founder with lived experience, and registered with the Australian Taxation Office and Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission, Missed creates awareness for both missing individuals as well as the issue of missingness, and provides both practical and emotional support to those left behind.
Working directly with over 80 families, Missed humanises missing loved ones beyond their vital statistics, advocates for the needs of their families, and uses creativity and innovation to give the public, media and decision-makers a powerful insight into the financial, emotional and psychological impact of a long term disappearance.
Missed respects the fact that not every family appreciates the often inevitable public interest in their private lives. Accordingly, we do not disseminate information regarding a missing person without authority from their family, nor do we act on behalf of families that have not initiated contact with the organisation.
