Hundreds of people joined us at this year’s Greenbelt festival to raise awareness of young runaways. Together we asked local authorities across England to sign up to the Runaways Charter and protect the 100,000 children who run away every year.

Please use our map to see if your local authority has signed up to our Runaways Charter and ask them to make runaways in your area safe.

Greenbelt is a Christian festival of faith, arts and justice held every year at Cheltenham race course. This year 500 festival-goers pledged their support for our Make Runaways Safe campaign. 

Hundreds more joined us to debate welfare, discuss last year’s riots and watch runaways-themed performances from the Berkeley Ensemble.
