Yesterday I was working for the charity Railway Children at Thales Group in London:
The theme of the conference was 'Return Interviews'. These are conducted when a child returns home after having run away from home. The social return on investment is huge, for every £1 invested in the interviews an average £5.27 is returned or saved.
The english coalition for runaway children discussed how to improve the whole system so that children and the wider community of family and carers are happier, empowered and feel more positive about the future.
