Together, we're making runaways safer
Thanks to everyone who has supported our Make Runaways Safe campaign, hundreds and thousands of young runaways are getting the support they need to keep them safe.
We've released a report, Making Runaways Safer, that takes a look at the year since we launched the Runaways’ Charter. The charter - which was co-written by young former runaways - asks local authorities to give young people the necessary support and protection they need when they run away from home or care.
So far, more than 30 local authorities have signed up to the charter.
Now we’re celebrating how far we’ve come. Our supporters have done thousands of things - sent emails, signed a petition, tweeted and more - to help build a stronger safety net that local authorities have put in place.
Please have a look at our interactive timeline of the campaign's highlights so far.
