'Be There' for vulnerable young people

14 Apr 2021

Growing up should be an exciting time for a young person, with endless opportunities and hope for the future. Sadly for many children this is not the case. In their short lives they have suffered serious abuse and neglect, leaving them struggling with emotional and psychological trauma. All this has been compounded by the coronavirus pandemic, leaving them feeling frightened and alone. For them, the future looks bleak and hopeless. We are changing that.

At Break we give vulnerable children and young people the time, support, and love they need to achieve their full potential. Through innovation, lifelong relationships, and keeping our young people at the heart of what we do, we are transforming futures and changing lives. Please help us to be there for them today.

Whatever a child’s start in life we believe that with the right care there is no limit to what they can achieve.

How can you 'Be There'?

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

Make a donation

Donations to Break are a huge part of making the work we do come alive. Every pound you donate allows us to enrich the services we provide children and young people – to be there, to provide lifelong support in the same way any parent would for their own children.

 

£20 pays for a bus pass for a young person so they can access a wide range of education or employment opportunities, reducing their barriers to engagement

£45 helps contribute to therapeutic counselling for a child who has suffered traumatic abuse before being taken into care, enabling them to better engage in education and improve their relationship with peers and support networks

£120 provides a tailor made skills workshop for a young person – from bricklaying to helpful home maintenance, even barista training sessions on our ‘Coffee Break’ Van – giving valuable life skills and employment opportunities.
