Lines will be open daily, Monday to Friday from 10am to 4pm.
When you call, a staff member will take your contact details and ask one of our Haven Nurses or Children Young People and Families Service Coordinator to call you back.
We will aim to call you back as soon as we can and within 24hours (Monday to Friday between 10am and 4pm).

The Haven is actively taking precautionary measures and continuously monitoring the Covid-19 Coronavirus outbreak, in line with local and national authority, public health and WHO advice and guidelines.
As an organisation we are monitoring the situation closely to enable continued support for our clients, many of whom have underlying health conditions and/or are elderly.
The continued ability to maintain, as far as practically possible, safe and effective emotional support services to our clients is our number one priority, as is the safety of our staff and volunteers.
We are following local and national public health closely to ensure this and have also implemented some adaptions to our services within each of the 3 Haven Centres.
Important Points for you to know
Haven Services WILL Continue:
- Support for clients will continue to be available via responsive telephone support sessions with The Haven specialist nurses and Children, Young People & Families Service co-ordinator, from Monday to Friday, between 10am and 4pm
Please do NOT attend Haven Centres:
- Client appointments, drop in services and visits to all Haven centres will not be available until further notice (each centre is only open to Haven staff).
Please be assured we will continue to monitor the situation very closely, risk assessing every day and will update the website should the contact details for support change as the situation develops.
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!
We have recently launched a new campaign which aims to increase awareness of the importance of legacies to the work of
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.
We have been the grateful recipients of a charity scheme run by Scotland’s Garden Scheme, Open Gardens of Scotland.
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.
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.
