About us

Who we are

Breck Foundation is at the forefront of efforts to safeguard children and young people online.

 

We value and celebrate the role each of our colleagues play in creating the impact we generate for children and young people, no matter how seemingly far removed they may be from the frontlines of our work. We are a small, close-knit team punching above our weight. We support each other because we believe that while some things might be one person's job, they are our collective responsibility. We measure individuals' performance by the quality of their work and their dedication to our aims. We believe that our colleagues should enjoy their work and have the space to be innovative in their approach to it. 

 

Our organisation was founded in 2014 in response to the tragic loss of Breck Bednar, a 14-year-old boy who was groomed and murdered by someone he met online. Our work aims to prevent this from ever happening again. Our work saves lives.

 

We are a South East England-based charity with national relevance and impact. We reach thousands of children and young people in schools and other community settings with Breck's story every year. Our talks and educational materials fill a gap in the current UK curriculum that otherwise leaves children vulnerable to online grooming and exploitation.

 

We take a whole community approach, working also with teachers, school support staff, parents, private sector employees and the wider UK public to create a network of digital champions – adults we empower to take effective action to protect the wellbeing and lives of young people.

 

We do more than educate; we bring a unique perspective when we work with policymakers across all levels of government and technology companies to create more robust digital policies and practices that put young people’s safety first.

 

With 98% of young people now active internet users, current and future generations grow up having to navigate new and evolving digital dangers. We are committed to making the internet a place where children can live, play and thrive in safety.

 

We are helping young people reclaim the internet.
