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 five minutes a child runs away from home or care in the UK. Shockingly, a quarter of those young people - 70 a day - are forced out of their homes by parents or carers. They are often forced in to taking greater risks on the streets. Many are physically harmed or abused while they’re away from home.
In most cases children who run away have no one to turn to. Hungry, lonely and scared, children as young as 11 are in serious danger and it’s vital that we act now to bring them to safety just like Sally, who you can read more about.
By giving today to Sally’s appeal you will help us continue to work directly with runaways at risk, bringing hope to the lives of children like Sally.
Your donation also sends an important message to a child who has known years of violence and neglect. It says: 'Someone cares about your future.'
Children who run away are often vulnerable and desperate. They may have escaped from misery at home to face even greater danger on the street.
Each one deserves a chance to find the love and innocence of a proper childhood after which they can flourish.
Please give what you can today.
