You might be reading this because you are away from home, or because you feel you need to leave home. Whatever your situation, you are not alone. We are here to help you explore your options getting you the support you need to stay safe. You may wish to return home, reconnect with family and friends or to simply let someone you care about know you’re okay. We can help you to do this.
We also know that people go missing for many different reasons and that returning home or getting in touch with family may not always be an option. We respect your right to go missing, and to stay missing, if that is what you want to do. If you’re struggling to work out what to do next, we can give practical advice over the phone on how to stay safe and find the support you need.

- Or we will explain to you how to stop the police searching for you if that is what you want.
What we won’t do:
