Pause Project – breaking a destructive cycle

Pause Croydon is here!


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.


Pause’s website provides good information on the history of Pause and the work that Pause Croydon will be doing (https://www.pause.org.uk/).


If you would like more information about Pause Croydon and/or you know of a woman who might benefit from working with this service please contact the Pause practice lead (Jessica Merlet) via email: jessica.merlet@croydon.gov.uk or via phone: 07729622886.
