The Lucie Blackman Trust aims to support British nationals in crisis overseas. Providing information, liaison, and support to families of those missing overseas is a vital part of their operations, and every year they reunite many families with their loved ones they feared they would never see again.

Through their relationship with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, they are also able to offer support and advice to victims of any serious crime abroad – such as murder or manslaughter.

Did you know...

• Founded in 2000, The Trust was formed in memory of Lucie Blackman, who was killed abroad

• The Trust can offer a wealth of support to the families of missing persons, from co-ordinating international searches to simply being someone to talk to

• Recognising that many people in this situation just want to talk to someone who has 'been there', the Trust can also put them in touch with others who understand what they are going through

• All of their services are free of charge

What makes the Lucie Blackman Trust different

They are currently the only charity of their kind – there’s no other charity in the world that can offer the same levels of information, liaison, advice and support throughout a missing person’s case abroad.

Other ways to support

The Lucie Blackman Trust is always grateful to those who run marathons, fun runs, and other events for them, and can provide sponsorship packs on request. If you don’t fancy running, you could always volunteer at local awareness events. Or for those who speak a second language, translators and interpreters are hugely valued by the Trust to help families understand the documents sent to them by abroad.

You can also support the Trust by raising awareness through social media, and liking and sharing their appeals and posts.
