We have been operating Postcode Lotteries across the world since 1989. We believe we can use our knowledge to raise funds and awareness of charities, allowing the charities to focus on their own specific causes.

The People's Postcode Lottery and Postcode Care Trust's expertise allows us to focus on delivering vital services for the 250,000 people that go missing every year, as well as loved ones living with the pain and uncertainty of searching for them. This support streamlines many areas of our work and represents a very valuable partnership.

We have a strong relationship with the People's Postcode Lottery and the Postcode Care Trust. This makes for a streamlined process that sees the funds raised by the players maximised and going towards the resources and people that need them most.
