Support Us

We need your support now more then ever

This is an unprecedented time for us all, but for our Members: the women we would ordinarily work with through our on-site programme, it is particularly difficult.

Our Members are amongst those most affected by the financial, social and health impacts of COVID-19. The long-term impact of the lockdown will likely be felt deeply with many already in vulnerable positions due to circumstances such as poverty, mental ill health, unstable housing or experience of domestic abuse and they have a long history of struggling to access the support they need.

In this current crisis the demand for Clean Break’s services has increased, so we are trying to raise vital funds to support our Members; providing a support line, care packages and broadband devices to help women meet their essential financial, medical and social needs. We are also providing access to therapy and theatre courses online.

There are many different ways you can help – please support now and make a difference.

See below for more information or please contact the Development Team by email or call 020 7482 8600.

For every £1 invested in Clean Break’s Members Programme, £4.57 is saved through savings to the criminal justice system and reduce re-offending

“I’ve seen the impact of Clean Break’s work – both on the women it works with in prisons and students on its London education programme, and on audiences in theatres across the country. It is an organisation that changes lives and changes minds.”

Just 5% of women re-offend within six months of leaving Clean Break

70% of women who complete a course at Clean Break are in education, employment or volunteering six months later
