Supporting British nationals and their families after a crisis overseas. Including support for missing persons, murder, suicide, natural and man made disaster, terrorism, suspicious death and serious sexual or violent crime.
Formed after the death of Lucie Blackman in Tokyo in 2000. We originally intended to provide free advice and training on safety overseas, but soon realised there was a greater job to do.
Providing families with information, liaison, advice and support throughout a missing person's case overseas remains a core part of our operations. Every year we reunite many families with the loved one they feared they may never see again.
The skills, knowledge and contacts we have gained in years of providing this support, along with a mutually respected relationship with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, have enabled us to expand our remit, and we are now able to help victims of any type of serious crime.
We have been providing a revolutionary level of care to families of British murder or manslaughter victims since 2008 and we can offer advice, logistical support, repatriation assistance, problem solving, fundraising support and much more to victims of any serious crime overseas.
