Hostage International offers independent emotional and practical support to families affected by a loved one held hostage, and to returning hostages.
We offer this through our dedicated team, many of whom have direct experience of this horrific experience.
We believe that no one should suffer alone from this terrible crime and are committed to improving understanding around it.

Hostage International relies on the generosity of individuals and organisations to deliver its vital services.
Based on our experience of supporting hundreds of families over many years, we have comprehensive information and resources to support you should a family member or employee be affected by a kidnap.
