Help The Children's Society build a safety net for children who run away from home.

Thank you for joining us at St Paul's Cathedral

More than 500 people attended special service in support of Make Runaways Safe

Our special evensong at St Paul's Cathedral in London was a great success. More than 500 people joined us on 15 November for the service that was dedicated to supporting our Make Runaways Safe campaign.

In addition to more than a dozen young people, many of whom are former runaways, our guests also included Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Gloucester, actress Jenny Agutter and hundreds of supporters. Please watch a video from the evening.

Readings during the evensong were delivered by former runaways, as well as our chief executive, Bob Reitemeier. Rt Revd Tim Thornton, Bishop of Truro and head of The Children's Society's board of trustees, delivered the address.

Why young people run away and the dangers they face

Over 100,000 children run away every year. Learn about why we're working to make runaways safe and take action today to help make young runaways safe.

Please watch Tom explain why young people run away and address the dangers they face.
