Welcome to Daybreak

Welcome to Daybreak Family Group Conferences

We are the country’s leading national voluntary organisation focused entirely on the delivery of family group conferences (FGCs) and related training.

Daybreak delivers programmes of the highest quality and aims for continuous service improvement, through systematic monitoring and collection of feedback; rigorous selection and training of staff, independent coordinators and volunteers; and inspiring individual and collective responsibility across the workforce.

Daybreak is at the forefront of FGC innovation and development, pioneering new approaches and the use of FGCs in new contexts.

Daybreak is influential in raising awareness of the benefits of FGCs and promoting their wider use nationally and internationally.

Daybreak plays a leading role in raising professional standards through the development and accreditation systems for FGC programmes and in capacity building through training of managers and practitioners and maintains a register of approved coordinators.

Daybreak actively seeks to advance knowledge about FGCs through its involvement in high quality research initiatives.

Our work is widely recognised as achieving great results for children, adults and their families whilst making significant cost savings for Local Authorities and other agencies.

On other pages of this website you can learn about how FGCs work, find out about our specific programmes for Child Welfare, Domestic Violence,Vulnerable Adults and Restorative Practices and learn about the Training and Consultation services that we offer.
