Making life better for young people in and around care

Break work across East Anglia giving children, young people and families the time, support, and care they need to achieve their full potential.

Whether that’s through therapeutic services, respite breaks, providing a resilient home or support with parenting, we are committed to supporting them through whatever life has in store.

This year, we are running two 12-week programmes to inspire more men to enter our mentoring service.

It takes a village

Could you help transform a child's life by providing a safe, loving home?

We know raising a child takes a village so when you foster with Break, you’ll never feel alone.

Find out about Break's Therapeutic fostering service including our online information sessions coming this spring.

Staying Connected

Break’s services aren’t just about keeping a roof over a young person’s head. They’re also about helping each and every young person thrive, no matter their start in life.

"I didn't feel ready to leave care"

Tyler Jones*, 21, left care at 18 and was moved into one of Break’s Staying Close, Staying Connected flats. He shares his story.

Time for a change?

At Break we live for change and what it can do for the lives of those that need us across East Anglia. We are always looking for exceptional people to join the team.

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. Be part of that journey and find your future career with Break.
