Street Children Charity

Together, we have changed thousands of lives…

Together, we can change thousands more.

Protecting childhoods. Rebuilding young lives.

We support vulnerable children alone and at risk on the streets and at transport hubs. We're leading change and building brighter futures across the world.

Working to end street life for children everywhere

Generational abuse normalises violence. Cultural norms put children at risk. Gaps in child protection systems let the most vulnerable fall into danger. They take away children’s voices. They make young people invisible.

But we see them. We hear them. And we're there for them before they turn to the streets, when they’re alone and at risk and after we’ve got them to safety.

Help & Advice

Children can be at risk on the UK transport network for a variety of reasons. It's important for everyone to know what to look out for.

Our youth practitioners provide direct, one-to-one support for children and young people at risk on the rail network who may be struggling with their mental wellbeing or feeling isolated.

Many of the children and young people we work with have run away from home or care. If you feel your child may use the rail network when missing or having a crisis, you can report your concerns to British Transport Police by calling 0800 40 50 40 or texting 61016. In an emergency, always call 999.

If you have concerns about a child or young person at risk on the rail network, whether they are missing, being exploited or experiencing crisis, you can contact British Transport Police by calling 0800 40 50 40 or texting 61016. In an emergency, always call 999.
