Missing People has been awarded a 2022 Charity Governance Award in the Transformation with Digital category, organised by the Clothworkers’ Company and other key charity partners.

Here they share a special message with WCIT members…

“We’re delighted that our leadership and staff who have been part of our digital journey have gained this recognition for their hard work over the past four years! Our programme of digital transformation, called One Safe Click, was spearheaded by our trustees, who have shown continual leadership and support to staff throughout the process.

Zoe Hart (Missing People’s digital director lead, Director of People and Organisational Development), Jo Youle (Missing People’s CEO) , pictured left to right with Justin McClaren, the Chair of Trustees, were thrilled to accept the award at the ceremony on Thursday, May 26 at Clothworkers’ Hall from Vinay Patel (far right) , CEO and co-founder of Lightful, a social media and campaign management platform.

As Justin said: “credit is to the team” – and that includes all of you at the WCIT and WCIT Charity!

You have been an instrumental digital funder and partner, alongside the Fidelity UK Foundation (to whom you introduced Missing People), BBC Children in Need, and the People’s Postcode Lottery. You’ve been there for us with hearts and minds. Not only with £300,000 of funding to scope our new beneficiary database (our ICM), brand new website and to fund the tech of the innovative Is This OK chatbot, but with expertise and ideas.

None of this – or the award – could have happened without YOU. Take a bow!”
