  • If I am unhappy at home can I move out

    I am 14 and for years, I have had to put up with my mum going against anything I ask or do and my dad just backing her up. I am an only child and always get into arguments about how I want a sibling and I have even asked to adopt. For quite a number of years now, I've been crying every day and doing as much as possible to get out of the house and not to lose my temper with my mum. I wish more than anything for someone to take me away from my 'home' as I would be happier anywhere but here. The meaning of home for me is now lost and I much prefer my chosen family whom I can trust and tell anything. Please tell me who I can talk to and ask for advice about moving out from 'home'. Thank you

We just want them to know their options and with whatever they choose that they are safe and not on the streets.
