Supporting Services

Break offers  residential short breaks for disabled children and young people who live in Norfolk and Suffolk, as well as a  full time children’s home. You can find out more about these services by clicking on short breaks.

Break provides Supporting Services to children with disabilities:  Break4Sibs, a sibling support group  for brothers and sisters of disabled children and young people in Norfolk; and Fusion, a group for young people with mild  to moderate learning difficulties.


Sometimes it is difficult to have a brother or sister with special needs. Siblings tell us of their parents not having time for them and feeling ‘second best’. They may also feel unable to have friends to visit and be bullied at school. Our siblings project offers fun activities and outings, and a chance for children to meet others in a similar situation and share their experiences.

The national charity ‘Sibs’ has some useful information. To find out more, head to https://www.sibs.org.uk/supporting-young-siblings/.


Break runs an exciting youth group for people with mild to moderate learning difficulties. This group builds on social, emotional, and communication skills, promoting independence in a fun and supportive environment.

Fusion youth group runs on Fridays, 6pm-9pm at Break's Diamond House, Vulcan Road North, Norwich NR6 6BT.

Contact Vicky Smith, victoria.smith@break-charity.org or call 01603 670100 for further details.

Break also runs a similar service called 'Evolve', which takes place at Parkside School every Wednesday during term time and provides community support to a number of young people.




Of parents state that their child's social skills and friendships have improved since being part of Fusion.
