Family tracing

Reconciling family members who have lost contact

Since 1885 the Salvation Army Family Tracing Service has been helping to reconcile family members who have lost contact with each other, and facilitating the first contact or rebuilding of these relationships.

We know that contact can be lost for many reasons, and searching for a relative is often an emotional experience. We provide a service that is professional, compassionate and non-judgmental, with support throughout the searching process.

Please note, we are currently experiencing high enquiry volumes and requests. Please bear with us while we work through these.
