Scotland's Runaway Children

9000 of Scotland's children will run away every year... where will they go?

The statistics on Scotland's runaways are frightening.

Did you know that:

One in nine children run away every year in Scotland
One in five run away before the age of eleven
One in seven has been forced to leave home before
the age of sixteen
Around 50% of children who run away, run away from homes where there is neglect and abuse
