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.

#PauseandListen to women who have experienced the removal of their children on Pause's podcast

The Pause podcast amplifies the voices and experiences of women who no longer have children in their care. In each episode, we talk about an issue that affects their lives. We will be joined by women, professionals, and sector experts to discuss the issues they face, reflect on their experience, and think about how we can work together to make things better.
