The charity says because of their insurance excess it won't be worth claiming for what has been taken or the damage which has been done.

However after news of the break in circulated on social media local people have come forward to offer their support.

The Essex-based charity provides support to children for recovery from traumatic experiences and help to deal with emerging mental health difficulties.

Police have been informed about the break in which happened sometime over the bank holiday weekend.
