Children's Home

On behalf of Norfolk County Council, Break provides a four-bed home  for children with disabilities. We work hard with  their families to make sure they remain a big part of their lives. We support  children in gaining more independence and help prepare them to move on to adult services.

Trafalgar Lodge is a four-bed residential home, providing support for young people aged from eight to eighteen with complex needs, including learning and physical disabilities.

Every young person is unique, with their own goals, aspirations and needs. In everything we do, our aim is to help our young people to fufil their potential. We strive to make Trafalgar Lodge a home. Our aim is to empower our young people to meet the challenges they will face and to lead lives which are full, rich, and independent.

We work hard to build positive, trusting relationships with the young people and their families. We have a diverse mix of male and female staff, who introduce new experiences and opportunities. We believe that these things help to build confidence and self esteem and create a fun, exciting, and loving environment in which the young people can flourish.

Simons Story

Simon lives at Break’s children’s home that provides support for children and young people with complex needs including learning and physical disabilities. Living at the home means Simon can do lots of activities and visit places that he would otherwise be unable to.

Here are a few of the things Simon was able to do this year with the incredible support of the staff in the home.

In June 2018, Simon went on a Norfolk Wherry on Salhouse Broad to help deliver one of the GoGoHares sculptures to its location for the summer. Simon loved the GoGoHares sculptures and really enjoyed being part of the trail in this way.

Later in the year Simon would also have the opportunity to ride on a speed boat while on holiday on the Isle of Wight, as well as visiting Carisbrooke Castle, a donkey sanctuary, the steam museum, and yacht racing at Cowes.

Simon’s support workers were also able to take him to the Science and Natural History museums. Simon enjoyed visiting London and riding on the Tube so much they took him to London again a few weeks later to do some more sightseeing including the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abbey.

Simon celebrated his 18th birthday by going out for a meal in the local pub before getting his surprise present from the GoGoHares team – his very own GoGoCreate Leveret!
