Our Story

Who We Are

The Breaking of Dawn is an organisation that focuses mainly on our Ethnic Minority offenders and ex-offenders and their wellbeing, and how we can help them overcome the challenges they face, and support them to have a fresh start in life. We aim to make sure the people we support have access to support they need, information and advice, we also aim to conduct events and training that empowers them to enable them to look after themselves. Some of the areas we will be concentrating on are workshops on confidence and skills building, support with getting apprenticeship etc

The Breaking of Dawn is always holding meetings with other organisations, councillors and politicians. Our aim is to bring solutions and policies that will make a real difference to prepare Ethnic Minority offenders as well as ex-offenders when they are released from prison to lead a successful life and also to make sure they have all the things they need in order to help them from being trapped to re-offend.

Our Story

The Breaking of Dawn was started by two women who identified a need of how Ethnic Minority women from a culturally diverse background experience different problems with their children and thought of how best to promote issues of awareness with other women within our community who also realised that there was a gap in terms of culturally sensitive services for ex-offenders and their families.

As a registered CIC our aim is to work with male and female adult ex-offenders from the age group 19-35, including their families. Among other factors contributing to our beneficiaries, are issues of domestic violence, drugs, alcohol, lack of employment, and immigration challenges etc.
