Railway Children aims to change the situation for street children around the world, by working through local organisations and advocating for change in government policies. Through partners we reach out to children as early as possible and act as an authoritative voice on their behalf to provoke actions and evoke the change they need.

We fight for children at risk on the streets. 

Railway Children 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. 

Railway Children aim to reach children as soon as they arrive on the streets and intervene before an abuser can. Our pioneering work enables us to get to street children before the streets get to them.
