Summer is officially here!

Here at Breakthrough we've been working non-stop.
We have some exciting new developments to share with you next month once everything's ready to go, including new projects and staff!
But until then, here's an update on what we've been doing, what events are coming up, and a little treat for you all....

The Stats:
Since January 2020 the Breakthrough team have...
  • Given 220 individual therapy sessions
  • Run 10 online support group sessions (new in May 2020)
  • Received 41 new referrals
  • Answered 104 out-of-hours calls for help and made 16 emergency visits to someone in distress
  • Led 21 trauma training courses (online and in-person) for 382 people increasing trauma awareness and training people in supporting survivors
We are a small charity with a big impact!

UCB Radio - Life Issues

Back in March 2020 the team were invited to UCB, a Christian station with 150,000 - 200,000 listeners a week, to record a series on how churches can be a support to survivors of trauma and abuse.

The 4–part interview with UCB’s Paul Hammond is being aired in 10min segments this week.
You can catch the full interview on Saturday evening 10-11pm, or on podcast on the UCB app later this week by visiting
