We work with children to ensure that they are loved, valued and listened to.

Ella's Story

Ella's Story

Ella ran away when she was 13. After just three days on the streets she was approached by a couple who offered her a meal and a place to stay. They even listened to her problems.

The next night, the man wanted Ella to sleep with him. She refused and was beaten.

We helped Ella realise the danger she was putting herself in on the streets, and the choices she had. And, when she decided to report the persistent bullying that had led her to run away, we were there to support her.

Ella is 16 now, and has just started college. It's been 14 months since she last ran away.
