The Haven started in 1973 and provides vital support to women and their children who are vulnerable to domestic abuse and homelessness. When women and children arrive at The Haven, it can often be with nothing more than the clothes on their backs, having had to flee for their safety at a moment’s notice.
The Haven provides a range of support services to help develop practical and emotional skills, rebuild confidence, overcome past trauma and assist in moving forward to a life free from abuse. Services include a 24/7 telephone helpline and live chat support; a range of communal refuges and dispersed safe houses supporting over 170 women and children; community support for families:, court advocacy; children’s dedicated services; financial inclusion, benefits and immigration support; resettlement and life-skills and counselling and holistic therapies.
