We make life

better for


young people

Break is an innovative charity that provides hope and support for vulnerable children and young people. Based in East Anglia, we offer a ‘whole childhood’ service that represents exceptional commitment to the young people we work with and investment in their futures.

Our vision is to be the leading children’s care charity in East Anglia striving for the best outcomes for young people on the edge of care, in care and moving on from care.

We will do this by offering a pathway of connected specialist support services to ensure young people have the care they need, when and where they need it, for as long as they need it.

Let's get BreakFIT!

With the dawning of New Year, a new month, or a new day we all have a chance to do something different – take on a challenge, look at life differently.

Improve your physical and mental wellbeing, and together we can transform futures and change lives of vulnerable young people.

Understanding Therapeutic Services

At the core of Break's work is relationship building and having the communications of the child or the young person understood. Our Therapeutic Services provide one-to-one support for children, young people, their caregivers and families. 

Jo Shepherd, Head of Community Services, shares an insight into the support we offer and the difference it makes.

Fundraiser Spotlight: Zizzie Moore

In October 2020, keyworker Zizzie Moore took part in Norfolk Cycling Events’ Autumn Classic Sportive, raising money for Break and proving she is a true wonder woman and fundraising superstar!

We caught up with her afterwards and asked her to share her journey and the surprises along the way.
