Breck Foundation is firmly pro-tech.
We don’t and will never try to limit or shut down technology in the lives of children and young people. We value and embrace the power it can have to create positive experiences for young people.
This value is based on the lived experience of Breck’s story and the experience of our founder, Breck’s mother, who, on police advice, took away Breck’s technology and drove the grooming underground, making it more secretive and dangerous. We prioritise a guiding voice with the children and young people we work with over a critical one.
Watch these clips to get a taste of the way we interact with children about gaming. Both videos are from a virtual speaker session to a group of year 5 and 6 students.
We are pro-gaming
Working with industry experts
Even though Breck Foundation was born out of a tragedy linked to online video gaming we don't ever want to stop children from enjoying the gaming world.
We work with gaming professionals to create strong relationships throughout the industry to help us spread our message and stay on top of the latest developments.
If you are a video game industry expert or e-sports professional and would like to collaborate please do get involved at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In February 2023, we held a Facebook live chat with Philip Wride an e-sports expert turned educationalist to talk about how he creates lesson plans that use video games to support teachers in the classroom.
