  • I want to run away

    I am 15, I need to leave home, but I dont know where to go. I dont feel safe living on the streets but I dont have any other family in the country or any friends I feel comfortable asking to stay at theirs. I know somewhere I can work shortterm cash in hand so I still have enough money for food. But I dont want to ruin my future, I still want to have an education and finish highschool, but I dont know how to do this without my parents finding me at school, as Im not old enough to sign legal forms for myself to sign up for a new school or get a proper job or anything? I still want to have a future I just cant handle being at home any longer. Thanks.
