I need to let people know I’m ok

We hope what you see here helps.  If you are feeling like running away or are away from home, we are here to listen.

Call or Text 116 000. For free and in confidence.

If you are away from home and you want to let people know you are ok, Runaway Helpline can help. You might be wondering how they are feeling or think that they might be worrying about you.

If you don’t feel ready to go back yet, or you want to find out if it’s ok to go home, making contact would be a good step.

If you don’t want to call and talk, could you text or email them? Often, if you reassure people that you’re ok, they will be glad you let them know.

If you don’t have credit or money for a call, you could try reverse charge calling the person, by calling 0800 738 3773. You will be connected if the person you are calling is happy to accept the cost of the call.

If you don’t feel ready to make contact yourself, Runaway Helpline is here. We can pass messages and also connect you on a Three Way Call.

We can also call the police or other agencies for you if you want to let them know you are ok or if you need help.
