Break provides residential child care at six homes throughout Norfolk, including one specialist home for children with profound disabilities.
We provide secure homes for children who are no longer able to live within their own families and they are characterised by being small four or five bed residential properties where the emphasis is on creating an alternative family environment.
All of our homes offer medium - long term care to children, between 8-18 years old who will all have experienced rejection, abuse or disruption within their families and many will have had several foster placements which have broken down.
Our high standards of care echo the outcomes enshrined in the ‘Every Child Matters' white paper and permeate every aspect of the support we provide for our young people, ensuring that they are healthy, stay safe, enjoy and achieve, make a positive contribution and attain economic wellbeing.
Break's children's homes have been particularly successful in offering stability to vulnerable young people. There have been real successes with young people achieving in learning and being ready to move into further education or employment. Many of the young people who live in Break's children's homes stay with us for many years and continue to be supported by our staff when they move on into independence.
The basic running costs of all our children's homes is met through service level agreements with Norfolk County Council Children's Services.
Our Mentoring Project links young people who have experience of the care system with adults who can act as positive role models and provide support for them as they face various issues in their path towards adulthood. The project supports 25 young people at any given time, most of these over a period of more than one year.
Mentoring is a one to one non-judgemental relationship in which an individual volunteer gives their time to support and encourage another. The value to the young person is spending time with a person who relates to young people, is able to listen, accepts them as they are and inspires, encourages and motivates them. The value to the mentor is the help they can give through their experience.
