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

Has your local authority signed the Runaways' Charter?

We are asking councils across England to sign up to the Runaways' Charter. Co-authored by young people, our charter sets out guidance for how young people want to be treated when they run away from home or care.

How to use the map

To find whether your council has signed our Runaways' Charter, click any area on the map. A pop-up window should appear with the name of the council and a notice about whether your council has signed our Runaways' Charter.

You can also zoom in or out using the tool on the left side of the map.
