Facing the future together with hope



Haven closure for the festive period

Please note that all three Haven centres (Blantyre, Wishaw and Forth) will close for the festive holidays at 2pm on Tuesday the 24th of December. Our drop in centres will re-open as normal on Wednesday 8th January 2020 at 10am.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our clients, volunteers and dedicated supporters for helping us to make 2019 the huge success that it was.

We are incredibly grateful for the continued support that has been shown to The Haven this year that has helped us to ensure that The Haven has been able to continue to provide much needed support to individuals, their families and carers who turn to The Haven at a very difficult time in their life.

From everyone at The Haven we would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year.

Kiltwalk 2019 Success

Its official, Team Haven has had the biggest and most successful Kiltwalk year to date!

With a total of 189 walkers and representation at all four Kiltwalks (Glasgow, Aberdeen, Dundee and Edinburgh), we are delighted to announce that more than £60,000 has been raised so far by our dedicated walkers and supporters for The Haven. What’s even more exciting is that this number is set to rise as we continue to receive sponsorship monies over the coming weeks!

The Haven encourage you to leave your legacy

We have recently launched a new campaign which aims to increase awareness of the importance of legacies to the work of

The Haven legacies campaign

The Haven.

This is the first campaign of its kind from us and will focus on why legacy giving can make such a huge difference to charities like The Haven. A legacy is a gift that you can leave in your Will. After you have taken care of your family and loved ones, you may wish to leave a gift in your Will to a charity that holds a special place in your heart and create a legacy that will support future generations.

Local Garden raises funds for The Haven

We have been the grateful recipients of a charity scheme run by Scotland’s Garden Scheme, Open Gardens of Scotland.

Haven staff and volunteers meeting Alan Brash

For the past few years, local Braehead man Alan Brash and his partner Margaret have taken part in this scheme by opening up their garden to the public and choosing to donate all proceeds to The Haven. This year the couple raised an incredible £790.32 which will go directly to supporting families affected by life limiting illness in the local Clydesdale community.

Children, Young People and Families Service Recruitment Opportunity

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.
