National Events

Support our national events and awareness campaigns

As part of its mandate, the National Missing Persons Coordination Centre (NMPCC) works to educate the Australian community and raise awareness of the issues and impacts of missing persons in Australia. This is done through programs such as National Missing Persons Week and International Missing Children’s Day, proactive media engagement, and education initiatives such as Day for Daniel (Morcombe).

We work with other stakeholders, support and search agencies, and the community to raise awareness of these campaigns and initiatives—it’s only together that we can make a difference.
