Sanjay Dighe, England Committee Chair Big Lottery Fund, said: “The festive season is a period of joy for so many, but also the season when there is much sadness with people missing and worries about the future. I’m therefore delighted that this month the Big Lottery Fund is able to support 49 organisations including Missing People who work so closely with people throughout the year to help make a positive difference to their lives.”
