The Haven Project

What We Offer...

The main role of the Haven service is to support survivors who are in temporary accommodation including dispersed properties, bed and breakfast and hostel accommodation to move on with their lives. The aim is that receiving support will prevent the survivor feeling isolated and not supported around their experience of the domestic abuse.

We can support harder people to reach people, who may have other support needs such as drug, alcohol or mental health issues, English may not be their first language, they may not be engaging with services and or lead chaotic life styles.

We implement an individualised package of support to suit each person in their particular situation.

Such a package of support will include:

  • Establishing a positive relationship and rapport with the person/family
  • Encouraging and involving each person in defining their needs and priorities to be addressed.
  • Designing a programme of action, coaching and activities to raise confidence and self esteem
  • Identify, liaise and provide advocacy support to help family access other appropriate service providers
  • Impart and develop skills for managing independently
