We know that some supporters want to know exactly what their cash donation pays for. We've handpicked a range of items of all different sizes and prices for you to choose from that will help support those young people within Break's services.
How gifting works
Making a gift to Break is really simple. We've got together with Amazon to create a 'wish list' - a bit like our very own Christmas list for Santa of the things we'd really like to use in our services with young people.
We also include items on the list that supporters could buy to help us offset some of our day to day costs too, so that that more of our funds can go directly to our providing vital support for young people. We regularly update our wish list with new items, so check back regularly.
To buy an item from our wish list, all you need to do is visit the link above, select an item from the list that you would like to purchase for Break and add it to your basket.
When you come to checkout just double check that the item is to be posted to the address below and finish your purchase.

We will then receive your gift as soon as Amazon can ship it. Thank you!
Examples of gifts we might ask for and why...
Weighted blankets help calm the nervous system and often improve sleep - incredibly helpful for young people who have sadly been through trauma and change.
We have many teens within our children's homes and gaming helps them keep in contact with their friends, it can also help them create bonds with staff by playing games together when they have down time & when times are tough.
The greatest gift anyone can give a young person leaving care is the ability to make their own choices, so a gift voucher allows them to buy something of their own, especially important when these young people do not have much disposable income.
Fundraise for Break
We’re always on the look-out for people who’d like to fundraise for us. Every pound you donate allows us to enrich the services we provide children and young people who are in care, leaving care and on the edge of care.
