The Runaway helpline

The Runaway helpline

Inner London attracts a fair amount of runaway young persons.

We ask you to look out for young runaways who may sit in the street. There is an obvious danger that these runaways get exploited by

  • People inviting them to stay in their homes for sexual favours
  • people using them for slave labour
  • gangs and criminals
  • begging gangs

If you come across young people sitting in the street, who look out of place, lost or homeless, please invite them to call the

Runaway helpline 116 000

If that young person does not have a mobile phone and you cannot afford to buy them a cheap one with a sim, then please ask local shops to accept young people calling from their premises to call or text. Runaway helpline website.
