ReRun was set up to work with young people who run away or who are forced to leave home in Dorset. ReRun is of specific interest as a rural project because, as Still Running (1999) research identified, the same proportion of young people run away nationally from urban, suburban and rural areas.

Most children who run away from home do so because of neglect, abuse, family conflict or drug and alcohol misuse. Return Interviews help address problems that caused a child to go missing, reduce further instances of running and find out if a child came to harm. Return interviews are also a vital tool in disrupting abuse and sexual exploitation and providing evidence for prosecutions of the perpetrators.
