We've created free resources for teachers to educate pupils about the dangers of running away.

Helping children to understand the dangers of running away and teaching them to make safe decisions when away from home is important. Our free school lesson plans help teachers to deliver lessons on running away from home, as well as helping children to identify safe people and safe places.

We have packs available for Key Stages 1, 2 and 3 to educate children between the ages of 5 and 16. The packs include guidance notes for teachers to provide them with more information about the issue of running away in the UK and how they can support children who are potentially at risk.

We'd like schools to download our free runaway prevention lesson plans and help us to educate children throughout the UK about the dangers of running away from home.

We'd like parents and carers download our free runaway prevention lesson plans and ask your child's teacher to deliver them to their class to educate them on safer choices.

You can also email your school a link to this page:www.railwaychildren.org.uk/schoolresources  and ask them to get involved.
