Christmas gift ideas
Tired of giving socks and smellies?
Instead, buy a day out, a Christmas party or a present for a young person.
Every day 275 children - that's a staggering 100,000 each year - face the risk and uncertainty of living on the streets over the fear of remaining at home. In most cases children who run away have no one to turn to.
Children as young as 11 years old are in serious danger and it’s vital that we act now to bring them to safety.
Every year, children die as a result of injuries suffered while living on our streets. Many others are badly injured or even sexually abused.
Our caring project workers get to know each child and what they need. We take the time to listen and meet children on their terms, whenever and wherever they need us.
Each year we help more than 1000 runaway children who desperately need our help to rebuild their lives. But there are still many more children out there we can’t yet reach because we don’t have enough resources.
A donation from you today will help us keep many more children safe.
Thank you so much for your generous support today.
