Break greatly values the generosity and support of the grant-making trusts and foundations, and other major benefactors, who have helped us over many years and have an ongoing interest in our work. They are of vital importance as we receive no statutory income for many of our services.
Many of the services we currently offer to children and young people, their families and carers need regular and ongoing funding if they are to remain in place. The costs of new services, new equipment, and acquiring or developing our buildings must be met entirely from voluntary income.
Some of our current projects include:
Family Support at Families' House - a tailor-made service for vulnerable families to help them with the many issues they face and which impact on their family relationships.
Moving On - Mentoring and transition support for young people who are leaving care.
Moving Forward - Mentoring and transition support for young people with severe learning disabilities, often combined with physical disabilities, who are leaving Break’s specialist children’s homes or who no longer receive our short breaks.
Fusion - a youth club for people, aged 11 to 16, with mild to moderate learning disabilities. It takes place every Friday from 6-9pm in Norwich at a youth hub called the Base. Fusion offers young people with complex disabilities fun and productive activities, giving them an opportunity to become independent, to achieve their potential and to flourish as adults in the future.
The donations we receive are incredibly important for the continuation and the development of our work and enable us to change the lives of the children and young people in our care.
