This is a space for Break's care experienced young people to raise awareness and share lived experiences to help others in their community and professionals supporting them.
Listen to the Podcast
Welcome to the land of care leavers! We are a group of UK care-experienced young adults supported by the charity Break. We discuss the issues we think are important to show other care leavers they are not alone. We give ideas and understanding to anyone working with kids in and after care so they get the best chances to succeed. Listen to our test episode now. Subscribe, so you don't miss the new full series released in Spring 2023.

Partcipation and Co-production
When young people have a voice and are involved in the decision making it can increase confidence and self-esteem, and encourage them to become active citizens in their own communities as they become adults.
In November 2019 the CoffeeBreak project was born and since then has been working to provide opportunities for our young people to discover their spark and develop some of the key skills that any employer is looking for.
