* Breaking the Cycle

Mission Statement

We are Breaking the Cycle. 

 

Breaking the Cycle is a counselling service for children and young people who have lived with domestic abuse. We are based in Newcastle upon Tyne and work across the city.   We run one-to-one therapeutic sessions that offer a safe space for children and young people to explore their emotions with an experienced counsellor.  these sessions often take place in education settings however we are keen to offer online sessions if clients prefer this.  

 

Our goal is to help children and young people to open up about their experiences and manage their emotions. We support them to make positive changes in their behaviour and help them on their recovery journey. Children and young people are also supported to build strong relationships with family, friends and teaching staff.

 

Our service is funded by the Big Lottery Community Fund.

Mission Statement

Help end isolation by supporting the Community Cafe

                                               

Action for Children is a national charity that supports and speaks out on behalf of the most vulnerable and neglected children and young people in the heart of communities throughout the UK.  In Newcastle we run the Galafield Community Hub and Cafe, In the Outer West of the City.

The Galafield Community Hub is a thriving centre serving the whole community. We have sports and leisure activities; support groups; dance; new babies sessions and adult learning. Alongside this we have specialist support when needed such as benefits advice, family support and a Foodbank. The Community Cafe is a new venture at the heart of the centre. This is a welcoming and friendly place for people to drop in and relax. We are providing the space for people to re-connect and end the isolation that COVID has imposed.

Our values

Passion - we are driven by our desire to help children and young people overcome injustice and disadvantage

Equality - we believe all children and young people have equal worth and equal rights

Hope - we believe in a child or young person's potential, no matter what they have experienced or what they have done

Our Vision

Our volunteers aim to build relationships and help young people feel positive about their futures.

We do this by giving them stability, support and guidance through being carefully matched with a fully trained adult that is committed to spend time with them.
