If you’ve already made the decision to go, it’s important to have a plan of how you’re going to stay safe. If you’re not sure where you’re going to go or what you’re going to do it could be really helpful to talk this through with an adult you trust first. It is important that you do not get into a situation where you’re in danger or get hurt.

There might be a possibility that you can stay with a member of your family, or social services may be able to find a safe alternative for you. If you know all your options first it will be easier for you to make a decision about what to do next and where to go.

Are you thinking of running away because you have been affected by I know I’m going to go?
