Facing the future together with hope
Welcome to The Haven
Information and support for families affected by a range of life limiting illness.
We are a registered charity providing support to people affected by a range of life limiting illnesses and to their family members and carers. The Haven supports people across the whole of North and South Lanarkshire through our centres in Blantyre, Wishaw and Forth.
The word Haven means a safe or a peaceful place and The Haven is exactly that. A place where people affected by a range of life limiting illnesses can come for support at a time when they need it most.
What we offer
Our Haven Centres provide practical and emotional support to complement medical treatment provided through statutory services. We aim to alleviate physical and emotional distress by supporting clients and their families to live life positively with hope.
Information for carers
We offer information and emotional support to carers of people affected by life limiting illness to ensure they can continue to remain in their caring role.
Fundraise for us
If you feel inspired to help The Haven there are a number of different ways that you can and every single donation helps us to support families affected by life limiting illness.
Aug 19: We have recently launched a new campaign which aims to increase awareness of the importance of legacies to the work of The Haven.
Aug 14: We have been the grateful recipients of a charity scheme run by Scotland’s Garden Scheme, Open Gardens of Scotland.
Aug 2: As we recently announced, we are expanding our successful Children, Young People and Families Service to our Forth centre, something we are delighted about. In order for the service to be fully established, we are recruiting volunteers aged 16 to 25 to come on board as peer support volunteers for the children and young people who access the service.
Jul 12: This September we are aiming to take our biggest team ever to the Edinburgh Kiltwalk to raise vital funds in order to sustain our support and services across our three centres.
