Support Us

Clean Break is committed to transforming women's lives through theatre - help us make this change happen.

Our work on stage, in prisons and in the community could not happen without the generous support of our donors. Each year we need to raise over £1 million, and every donation, no matter what size, makes our work possible.

For every £1 invested in Clean Break’s Education 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.”

Dame Harriet Walter DBE, Actor and Clean Break Patron
