Creating space for change

Pause works to prevent the damaging consequences of thousands more children being taken into care each year.

Pause works with women who have experienced, or are at risk of, repeated pregnancies that result in children needing to be removed from their care. We aim to give women the opportunity to pause and take control of their lives breaking a destructive cycle that causes both them and their children deep trauma.

As Pause Participants transition out of Pause there is often a range of emotions, opportunities and challenges for Participants to discuss and work through with support from their Practitioners. It is also a massive achievement. Congratulations! 💚💪 #doingthingsdifferently…
