Your social worker is there to help you and to listen to you and what you want. They might not always be able to let you have everything you want but they should take your views into account when they make decisions about you.
Some common things that young people in care say they find difficult is their views being ignored. Maybe they are made to live somewhere they don’t want to be, they don’t feel safe or happy where they live, or they don’t get to see friends and family as much as they want. All of these issues could make you feel like running away.
If you feel you’re not being listened to by your social worker or carer, it can be very frustrating. If you have problems concerning you, then you should be able to talk with someone about them. In a lot of situations, that person would be your social worker, but if you feel you are not being heard, then that could lead to things getting worse.
