Young People's Voices

A space for Break's care experienced young people to raise awareness and share lived experiences to help others in their community and professionals supporting them.

Listen to the Podcast

Welcome to the land of care leavers! We are a group of UK care-experienced young adults supported by the charity Break. We discuss the issues we think are important to show other care leavers they are not alone.


In November 2019 the CoffeeBreak project was born and since then has been working to provide opportunities for our young people to discover their spark and develop some of the key skills that any employer is looking for.

Find us on Instagram

We co-produce Break's Instagram account, headed by Team Leader *Fiyn, 21. You'll find true stories, useful tips and information for care leavers, behind the scenes of Break's activities and special guest appearances from care experienced people from the wider community.
