Every year hundreds of thousands of children around the world go missing or are abducted. Over 140,000 children go missing each year in the UK alone. Some are forcibly separated from one parent by the other, some are abused, and others simply disappear, never to be found again. All face serious risk of physical harm and mental trauma, while their disappearances cause untold anguish to their families.
PACT is a non-profit organisation registered in the UK and the US. It was founded in 1999 by Lady Catherine Meyer, CBE, while she was living in Washington DC. PACT's mission is to campaign for fundamental improvements in child protection policies and practices. Our work is targeted to finding answers to the tragedy of hundreds of thousands of children who go missing or are abducted every year. We do this through research, policy and advocacy.
