The one stop shop for young people, adults, carers and professionals to access information, services and activities across the Breckland District


The Breckland Youth Advisory Board was created in 2012 to respond to the needs of young people in the Breckland District aged 11-19yrs. The Board is a mix of young people and adult professionals who come together from a variety of backgrounds and professions such as Health, Police, Schools and local Council. Each year some money is given to the YAB to commission youth projects that meet specific needs such as giving young people the confidence to volunteer, make positive choices for their wellbeing and address social issues such as bullying, mental health, sexual health and employment.

One of the projects the Young Commissioners and Breckland YAB felt was needed was this website. This is a site that can give Young People, Parents and Professionals a place to find out what is happening across the Breckland District to promote participation, communication, volunteering and community cohesion. The site has been designed with young people to ensure it is easy to use and easy to access. We hope you find this website useful and if you have any feedback please email info@leapinghare.org

If you are aged between 11-19yrs and are interested in becoming a young commissioner or would like further information about Breckland YAB please email anita.beckett@benjaminfoundation.co.uk
