About Us

Break makes life better for children and young people on the edge of care, in care and leaving care.

Working across East Anglia, the charity firmly believes that every child, no matter their start in life, deserves a bright future. Starting by building and earning trust, and then providing opportunities for young people to engage with, Break’s aim is to walk with those they support every step of the way to independence. And the support doesn’t stop there, a lifelong offer means the charity is there whenever and wherever they’re needed.

Our Vision A world where all young people, whatever their start in life, have the opportunities and relationships they need to thrive.

Our Mission Giving care experienced young people the love, support and ambition they deserve.

We are an ambitious organisation - ambitious for the young people and families we work with, for our colleagues and for our charity and what we can achieve when we work together. Break's 2022-23 Impact Report.
