Break has been supporting children, young people and families since 1968

About Us

At Break, we make life better for vulnerable young people.

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 and moving on, children with disabilities, children at risk, and families who need support, finding a way through difficult times and opening the door to brighter tomorrows.

Our vision is to ensure children, young people and families reach their full potential and shape their own futures in a safe and creative environment.
