I want to run away, should I?

If you’re unhappy at home, it’s natural that you might think about running away. But it isn’t the answer. Running away can be dangerous because it can be difficult to find somewhere to stay. It’s important to try and get help whilst you’re still at home. If you feel like running away, try to call a helpline or talk to someone you trust. You could perhaps arrange to go to their place for a bit or somewhere else you know is safe.

If you do end up having to run away, the Runaway Helpline can help you to get to a safe place.

You can contact them confidentially 24 hours a day on Freefone 0808 800 70 70, or email help@runawayhelpline.org.uk.
