Our runaways work - Children at risk on the streets
Neglect, abuse and isolation can sometimes make home so unbearable that the only solution is to run away. This often leads many children to begging or stealing in order to survive.
We meet these children at their point of greatest need. Through exploring and understanding why they have run away, we help them find solutions to the problems they face.
We provide essential drop-in services, advice and counselling, and we campaign for the government and local authorities to provide essential services and safe accommodation for runaways.
