Break Christmas Appeal supporting Young People Moving on
Patron Jake Humphrey supports Break's Christmas Appeal
It's exciting but also scary for any of us to make the transition from living with our family to being independent. But without support, it can be much harder.
At Break, we continue to offer support to the young people who leave our care services for as long as they need it.
With your help, we can keep on doing this. No-one should have to go from security and familiarity out into the big wide world without a bit of guidance. Please help us give that to the young people who need it most.
- £10 would fund electricity or gas for more than a week or food for a week
- £20 would fund support to seek relevant training or eductaion options or a Transition worker to support a young person for an hour
- £50 would contribute towards establishing an apprenticeship opportunity

With care leavers at high risk of social exclusion, Break's Moving on Team support them to lead rich, fulfilling lives and give a hopeful future. We enable our young people to live independently and also be integrated into society.
This service remains available for as long as required because we believe our care leavers should expect the level of care and suppor that a reasonable parent would provide.
Mentoring provides individual support for young people in or leaving care. Volunteer mentors develop non-judgemental, trusting relationships with a child or young person, and in engage in supportive, purposeful activities to support and encourage positive change.
"As Patron of Break, I have seen first-hand the amazing work they do with vulnerable children, young people and families. Please support these young people, if you are able to, this Christmas. Thank you" Jake Humphrey
