Firebreak continues transforms the lives of vulnerable young people. 

This project has now closed, however you can still support us be going to Essex Firebreak2.

This week long intensive programme has personal safety and wellbeing at its core, and enables disadvantaged young people the opportunity to gain vital life skills which result in happier and healthier outcomes. 

The young people referred to Firebreak are experiencing many challenges in their daily lives.  This can include those struggling with self esteem, confidence, bereavement, life limiting illnesses, disability, as well as and those not in education, employment or training. 

The fundamental principles of Firefighting, including leadership, teamwork, and motivation, are combined with practical skills and scenario based training, classroom centered theory and discussion workshops.   

Each course costs £4,000 for 12 students (£333 per student), and we run them at Fire Stations all over the County.  Any amount you donate will be attributed to a course. To find out more: or call 01376 576214.
