Experiences of discrimination - professionals

At Missing People we are gathering evidence about the experiences of people who have been missing and their families who have experienced race discrimination at the hands of the police or any other service in response to someone going missing.  
We want to hear from professionals who work with missing people or their families; or those who work with marginalised communities in other capacities but may have supported people who have been missing or reported a loved one missing.
This survey should take about 5 minutes and we will ask questions about your views on how people from Black and minoritised ethnic communities are treated when they go missing or report a loved one missing. 

We know that we should have done more in the past but we hope that going forward we can use our position and privilege to help challenge discrimination in the response to missing people.
