Breaching a contract

Hi I'm self employed and signed a contract to carry out work for an organisation for a specific period of time.

Changes in my personal circumstances (elderly and disabled relative the other side of the country needs care, no other family to help) mean I may have to quit work for a while.

Obviously this would be a breach of contract. Can anyone tell me what the ramifications of this could be?

I'm assuming they will take legal action? I have no savings and assets so don't know how I would pay.

Also posted in employment as I'm not sure what traffic is like in this area.

I would imagine that in a situation like that, you should be able to quit with no problem. I can't see why they'd sue.
