Foster with a charity in East Anglia

Fostering with Break means you are joining a family dedicated to enriching a childs life.

Break's not-for-profit fostering service works across Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire looking after children on either a short-term or long-term basis. We also offer parent and child foster placements and provide loving homes for children with disabilities.  

As a foster carer you’ll be giving a child who is unable to stay with their own family, somewhere safe, stable and loving to live. We’ll give you full therapeutic training, a dedicated social worker, monthly funding and all the help and support you need so you’re never alone on this incredible journey.  

The decision to open up your home and your heart to someone starts with a conversation. Our team are always on hand to answer any questions, whether you’ve fostered for years and are looking to transfer to us, or you are just curious about whether fostering could be for you.

"It's about helping them to harness their strengths and finding that one little thing and asking yourself, 'How can we support this? How can we help them to grow?' "

Stuart and Paula, foster carers.

Parent and Child Fostering

Open your home for a short time to a parent and child, empowering them to reach their full potential and provide a stable environment for their child to thrive.

Long-term Fostering

In this rewarding role you will nurture and support children who are unable to live with their families.

Support Foster Care

Support foster carers play a key part in Break’s fostering family. You’ll be matched with a foster family and will provide short breaks for the child in their care.

Are you already fostering but looking to move?

Curious about how Break does fostering a little differently?

You have the right to transfer to another fostering agency for any reason, and it’s a straightforward process that we can help you through. You can also transfer with a child you're already caring for, and we’ll work with you to ensure their well-being comes first.

As a not-for-profit agency, we reinvest in you and the child in your care.
