Jody’s story

When I was 12 I ran away from home because at home I was surrounded by violence and the fighting frightened me so much. After I ran away I got dragged into a dangerous gang and started doing things I didn’t understand. I thought the kids I met on the street would be better than anything I knew at home. At home I felt worthless and nothing more than a ‘mistake’ – I thought my family didn’t want me around.

But I was one of the lucky ones because The Children’s Society found me. My Children’s Society project worker was called Rachel. We met up regularly – I didn’t trust her at first but over time she helped me open up and I started to talk to her. At the time I wasn’t even registered to go to school. Rachel helped me get back to school, she helped me with my confidence and made me realise how dangerous it was to run away. She even helped me to cope with the trouble at home safely.

Rachel would never have come into my life without supporters like you, so thank you – I’m happy now because I have a safe home and I’m optimistic about the future.

Life would have been so different without The Children’s Society so thank you so much for supporting them. Playing the Christmas raffle is a small thing to do but the money it raises makes such a difference. And I’d love it if The Children’s Society could help even more children like me.
