Support Pause to…
- reach more women
- amplify women’s voices on the issues that matter most to them
- influence the system so families never experience the removal of a child into care more than once
Whether you would like to give a gift personally or donate through a trust or foundation, our team can help you make a real difference to women throughout England, who have had multiple children removed from their care.
Your donation will make a real difference to Pause and the women we work with:
|could cover an online meeting and activity with our Advisory Group, bringing women across the country together to influence Pause’s decision-making
|could enable Pause to create one co-produced episode of our Pause and Listen podcast, with women with experience of the Pause Programme
|could contribute to a creative project to amplify women’s voices
|could help Pause towards the cost of publishing a report with policy recommendations on an issue that women have told us is important to them
|could enable Pause to provide a group of women with experience of the Pause Programme with campaign training, to help lead Pause’s influencing work
|could support Pause to train an additional five Peer Supporters: women with experience of the Pause Programme in London who offer one-to-one support and group work to help other women create change
|could pay for one woman to receive a year of support from Pause
|could enable Pause to help a local authority to understand the scale and pattern of women who have had repeat removals in their area
|could pay for Pause to measure the impact of the Pause Programme on the women that we work with, for one year
|could enable Pause to expand our preventative ‘Intervening Earlier’ pilot to an additional site for one year, to work with more care-experienced young women
|could pay for an independent evaluation of Pause, so we can better demonstrate our impact and cost-saving for local authorities
|could enable a new Pause Practice to deliver the Pause Programme in a new area for one year
Thank you for your interest in Pause; any support you can provide will make a huge difference to the lives of women and their children.

We are grateful to our generous funders, who support Pause’s work with women who have had children removed from their care. These contributions enable women to work to build a strong foundation upon which to build a more positive future for themselves and their children, and support our influencing work around improving the policy, services and systems that affect them.
