It only took 20 years

Following on from our last mention of the subject, the government is at last promising to do something about young runaways:

Changes include plans for a network of safe places across the country where runaways can find shelter; new guidance for local authorities on how to deal with the needs of children who have run away from home; and the introduction of trained police and council workers with specific responsibility to support them.

Hats off to the Children’s Society, who have spent the last two decades campaigning. And now let’s see if the government will decriminalise children abused through prostitution.
