Our UK work is based around the transport network and keeping children and young people who use it from harm. It is really working and we’ve had great results. But this has only been possible thanks to inspirational people like Chris Neely from British Transport Police.

Our Christmas appeal has been a massive success and exceeded all our expectations. Thanks to you we’ve been able to reach even more children at risk of vanishing from India’s railway stations. Children like Arun who we found after he’d been sold into child labour when his father died. He was forced to scrub floors and then made to work on a construction site. We rescued him from traffickers, who are now being prosecuted, and reunited Arun with his family. The generosity of our supporters has helped us make Arun, and hundreds of others like him, safe from violence, abuse and trafficking. We can’t thank you enough.

Wherever possible we take children back home. Then we work with the whole family to make sure they can stay together, with therapy and counselling or with help to develop secure sources of income. We support them however we can to make sure they are stronger and safer together. Last year we reintegrated 4,647 children with their families.

14-year-old Raju was found on the railway platform at Darbhanga in India, distressed, filthy and covered in scratches. He’d been forced to work in inhumane conditions in a chicken factory where he was made to sleep on the floor and not given proper food. When Raju finally escaped he was lucky. We found him before traffickers did. Read his full story here: http://bit.ly/2AfzJov

We've got a fun way to kick off the festive season - don a (free!) Santa suit and take part in a family-friendly 5K in Battersea Park, London. Adding to the feel-good factor, you'll be changing children's lives at the same time! Book your place: http://bit.ly/2zIO141
