Our work creates space for change…
Pause Practices work directly with women, so that no woman should ever have to experience the removal of a child more than once. They offer an intensive, supportive 18-month programme that involves a trusting relationship between a woman and their Pause Practitioner.
Pause Practices are supported by the Pause national team, which focuses on wider sector influencing, to advocate for a relationship-based approach to social care and to create positive change in the systems and services that affect women.
There is a robust independent evidence base that demonstrates that the Pause Programme works. We have now worked with over 1,200 women across the country, making us the largest organisation doing this work. We harness this expertise and our learning and insight from women and Pause Practices to direct our training and consultancy offer.
