THE charity Break is opening a residential care home in March in February.
The new home will be for four young people aged eight to 18. Break will provide care and stability to these young people who have often had multiple placement breakdowns.
The charity aims to provide a safe, stable and caring environment to help ensure that the young people are equipped and supported for moving on into independence.
In a press release, Break has said staff and management will do all they can to ensure they provide care that is of the highest possible standard, working closely with family, social workers, teachers and others.
The young people who come to the home may well have encountered numerous difficulties which can range from neglect and abuse to traumatic events through to family and placement breakdowns.
Hilary Richards, Break’s director of care services said: “Break is committed to developing services to meet the need of local communities in East Anglia.
“I am delighted that Break has been able to open a Children’s Home in Cambridgeshire and look forward to welcoming the first young people.”
With over 1,000 children in care in Norfolk alone, it is Break’s intention to provide additional residential and fostering services across East Anglia within the next three to five years.
March Mayor Bernard Keane has been invited to an open event at the home on February 1 from 12.30pm to 2pm.
