Zurich Community Trust
"Zurich Community Trust (ZCT) has a very clear purpose - which is to help disadvantaged people to move from a state of dependence to independence.
"If ever a project encapsulated an opportunity to fulfil such a purpose, it is ‘Breaking the Cycle’. Last year, I saw first hand that whatever the social returns tell us are the benefits, there is no price that can be attached to families whose lives are transformed by the work of this brilliant programme.
"Zurich is an insurance provider. We exist, in all of our business lines, to help our customers through uncertain times in their lives. Zurich Community Trust's support of Breaking the Cycle is, I feel, completely aligned to Zurich's day to day business mission.
I am proud that the great firm that I work for, Zurich, has chosen to be associated with such a great initiative as Breaking the Cycle. "

Breaking the Cycle
1.3 million children have a parent who is a drug addict or alcoholic. For these children, drug and alcohol problems become all too familiar, and growing up in such situations means they are seven times more likely to become addicted themselves. Unlike other drug services which tend to focus on the person with the addiction, Breaking the Cycle supports the whole family.
The Breaking the Cycle pilot sites were and continue to be funded by Zurich Community Trust as part of their Social Transformation programme. The Trust has extended the partnership with Addaction and will support the expansion of ‘Breaking the Cycle’ across the UK over the next four years.
