We make life

better for


young people

Break is an innovative charity that provides hope and support for vulnerable children and young people. Based in East Anglia, we offer a ‘whole childhood’ service that represents exceptional commitment to the young people we work with and investment in their futures.

Our vision is to be the leading children’s care charity in East Anglia striving for the best outcomes for young people on the edge of care, in care and moving on from care.

We will do this by offering a pathway of connected specialist support services to ensure young people have the care they need, when and where they need it, for as long as they need it.

There are so many ways you can make a difference to the children and young people Break support.

Whatever a child’s start in life we believe that with the right care there is no limit to what they can achieve. Please help us to be there for them today.

Hugo's Story

Pathways to Employment

Break are focused on increasing the participation of our young people in all aspects of our work, raising aspirations and helping them find their spark and bridge the gap between themselves and potential employment.
