Norfolk children's charity Break celebrates 50 years

About Break

At Break, we make life better for vulnerable children.

We believe every child and young person needs a home where they feel safe and loved, so they can grow in confidence and look to the future with hope.

That’s why we work tirelessly to help young people in care, children with disabilities and families who need support, finding a way through difficult times and opening the door to brighter tomorrows.

Children in care

At Break, we provide children’s homes that are as family like as possible with a maximum of four children at any one time. We provide a home and give a sense of permanence to more than 35 children and young people.

Through our fostering service, we help children move on from what may have been a traumatic early life. We work with some exceptional foster carers to provide a secure and loving home. Where possible, try to ensure children and young people are close to their families and communities and have as much contact with them as possible.

When young people leave care at just 18, the Moving on Team step in to provide practical help and a sense of ‘extended family’ for as long as they need it and beyond. This could include support with finding accommodation, completing job applications, managing finances or simply someone to talk to.

Children and young people with disabilities

We support children and young people with disabilities providing a home for young people with disabilities, working hard alongside families to ensure they remain part oftheir child’s everyday life. Our short break service allows families to take a vital break from their caring responsibilities and provide young people with the opportunity to try new things and make new friends.

Support for families and young person mentoring

Our Mentoring service is for young people who may benefit from some additional support on a regular basis, for example a young person who is dealing with challenges of being a young carer. Mentoring can provide young people with an informal supportive relationship with a Mentor that can last for years and bring real lasting benefit.

When a family is in crisis, it is the children that suffer. Where families are in need of support Break provides this at the Break Family Centre or in the community. This can include supporting children and families through separation or other difficulties. Support is offered to schools where they believe a child or young person could benefit from our individual or group therapy.

Break also undertakes support and assesment work for children who are at risk.

Get involved!

Break has something for everyone and everyone has something for Break. As we move into our 50th year, we are as reliant as ever on an amazing network of people, companies and organisations who support our work through volunteering or fundraising. We would love to hear from you if you would like to raise funds for us or volunteer with us in our shops or at events. If you are having a clear out, please donate to one of our 51 charity shops.

Together we can change young lives.

Summer 2018 brings a city trail of 50 Hares to celebrate Break's 50th Birthday.
