Children from The Meadows Primary School in Madeley Heath dressed as what they want to be when they grow up in support of our 'If I grow up' campaign! Suzanne went along to meet them and tell them what life is like for children in East Africa who struggle to survive on the streets.

Thanks to your support, Stella can dream of WHEN she grows up, not IF. When we met her she was scavenging for scraps on a rubbish dump. Read her story: http://bit.ly/1Q3996T

A huge thank you to the Branch Line Society and TransPennine Express who raised over £11,000 at the weekend with their ‘Tyne and Tees Tracker’ rail tour. Their total is set to be doubled by the UK government as part of our 'If I grow up' appeal!

Football, camping - and life skills! These girls in Mwanza, Tanzania, are part of a street association. They've been taking part in a workshop that aims to equip them with skills to handle the dangers and risks of life on the streets - and to ultimately have the confidence to take advantage of opportunities that could lead to a brighter future.

We're launching a new partnership in Croydon to reach more vulnerable children at risk of running away. We'll be funding one-to-one work with young people and their families, addressing the issues that are causing them to run away and helping them to stay safe.

In 2014, between eight and 14 children were estimated to have gone missing each day in Croydon. Click on the link below to read more.

We fight for children living on the streets
Introduction

Railway Children is an international children's charity. We fight for vulnerable children who live alone at risk on the streets, where they suffer abuse and exploitation. In the UK, society often denies their existence, and in other countries the problem is so prevalent that it has become ‘normal’.

They run away or are forced to leave homes where they suffer poverty, violence, abuse and neglect. They find themselves living on the streets because there is nowhere else to go and no one left to turn to. The problems they face on the streets are often even worse than those they endured at home. Every day we fight to change their story.
