The Salvation Army Family Tracing Service



The Family Tracing Service restores and sustains family relationships by locating relatives who have lost contact with each other, either recently or in the past.
We know that for some clients searching for family is an emotional experience. With this in mind we provide a service that is professional, compassionate and non-judgemental, with support throughout the searching process.
Our dedicated team of caseworkers, who work on behalf of our clients, handle more than 2,000 new enquiries each year, with searches taking from as little as one day to two years.
There is no guarantee of success in every search we undertake, although every effort will be made to trace the person. Of applications accepted our success rate is 89% resulting in more than eight people being reunited every single working day.

If you are the owner of the service, please update the details.
