Daybreak is a registered charity that helps vulnerable members of our society, particularly children and young people at risk of being taken into local authority care.
We do this by means of Family Group Conferences – a comprehensive process through which the child’s extended family create their own plan of how they will all come together to look after the child. Throughout this process the family is given full and accurate information and extensive guidance and support. Once approved by social services or the courts, the plan is enacted and monitored to ensure that the child is well cared for. So children remain cherished, safe and happy within their own extended family, rather than being entrusted to the care of strangers.
Working closely with Local Authorities across England, we currently help more than 2000 children and their families per year. And we also use FGCs to help vulnerable adults, such as those suffering domestic abuse.
