One Click Away



Are you aged 17+ and lost touch with your mum, dad or sibling?
Are you a parent who's lost touch with their son or daughter (aged 17+)?
Have you seen them on social media or know where to find them?
Are you ready to make contact, but need help reaching out?
We could help support you through the next big step

In today’s world, it’s never been easier to connect with people quickly. In ‘One Click Away’ we follow people as they use social media and mobile technology to contact a family member they’ve never met or not seen for a long time. Whilst the simplicity of connecting online might appeal, knowing how to navigate what happens next can be difficult, without additional support. Working with expert reunification specialists, these families will reunite and hopefully forge lasting relationships.
