The question “is it safe” depends a lot on the situation.

If you are thinking about running away to somewhere you are not sure about, then we would definitely suggest you give Runaway Helpline a call on 116 000. It’s free and confidential. The person you will speak to will give you help and advice. They won’t judge and they will simply talk with you about what’s happening. If you have concerns that the place you are going to is not safe, then trust that feeling and don’t go. If something is telling you it’s not right then it probably isn’t.
