Missing / running away

There are a lot of reasons why young people run away from home. You might be having problems at home or at school, or you may even be getting hurt or harmed in some way. It can feel like you've got no one to talk to, and that running away is the only option. That is not true. There are lots of people who can help. Have a look at the different places that can give you support. You're not alone.

Remember: if you're in any danger or feel unsafe, get in contact with the police immediately on 999, or talk to an adult you trust.

Watch 'My Choice', which follows the story of a girl who runs away from home.
