Eight years on from our foundation, and Breaking Barriers has emphatically outgrown the notion of being a ‘small’ charity. We are a high-performing team of 70+ people, our income has increased to over £3.75m and we have expanded beyond London by cementing our delivery in Birmingham and Greater Manchester, with long-term plans for these regions.

Most importantly, this year we supported more refugees than ever before, who achieved more employment, education and volunteering outcomes than in previous years, all with the help of our biggest pool of volunteers to date.
