As many as 100,000 young people under 16 run away from home or care each year in the UK. This work presents models of practice that have been developed to support them, including refugees, street work, missing persons schemes, centre-based models and preventative work. It draws together the learning from these practice models and is designed to support statutory guidance from the Department of Health, as well as contributing to the Social Exclusion consultation on young runaways. The text draws on the expertise of managers and practitioners working with young runaways, and uses case studies of projects run by The Children's Society, Barnados, the NSPCC, the Catholic Children's Society and the ASTRA project to illustrate and discuss key themes. It should be useful for managers with responsibility for developing services within local authorities, social services, health and education sectors, the police, and voluntary organizations and community groups.
