Short Breaks

Short breaks provide children and teens with opportunities to take part in activities and develop skills, while giving their families a chance to rest from caring duties. Short breaks are meant to be an enjoyable experience that helps them to become more independent and form friendships outside of their family. These children and young people may be vulnerable for a variety of reasons including having a disability, a mental health difficulty or being in care.


Break is an innovative charity that provides hope and support for vulnerable children and young people. Based in East Anglia, we offer a ‘whole childhood’ service that represents exceptional commitment to the young people we work with and investment in their futures.

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.

We will do this by offering a pathway of connected specialist support services to ensure young people have the care they need, when and where they need it, for as long as they need it.
