Trusts and Foundations

For over 40 years, Clean Break has used theatre to transform lives: in prison, on stage and in the community. Our vision is of a society where women can achieve their full potential, free from criminalisation. We work with women with experience of the criminal justice system or at risk of entering it (our Members) and endeavour to give a voice to their often-unheard experiences.

Support from Trusts and Foundations contributes vital income that enables us to deliver our mission. We work with a range of charitable bodies of all sizes, who are looking to achieve impact across theatre, criminal justice, and women’s sectors. This support is vital to all areas of our work - from our Members Programme, to our work in prisons, to productions in nationally significant venues across the UK that tell the hidden stories of women and criminalisation.

“This really is a lifeline helping me to create a new world, a new life for me, I’m finding my voice more and more so thank you one and all (…) I’ve never ever had anything like it and I am over the moon at the daily discoveries.” - A Clean Break Young Artist
