Quotes from our Missing Young People service

I would have been completely out of the loop as neither the school nor social services ever informed me about anything – they only informed my son’s Mum who doesn’t live with me. I wouldn’t have known anything if the worker hadn’t helped.

Parent of a Missing Young Person

Without Jigsaw4u, I genuinely don’t think my daughter would be alive!

Parent of a Missing Young Person

Without Jigsaw4u, things wouldn’t have been this good – I would really worry about the state she would be in by now and the state I would be in too – Things are now so good.

Parent of a Missing Young Person

Young people have reported trusting the Jigsaw4u workers, building up relationships over time. The workers have pushed for stronger responses to address the needs of children who are going missing and make sure their voice is heard – they have been an integral part of the work to seek to reduce the need for children to go missing.
