The Haven Blantyre
Our Blantyre Centre is our original Haven and opened in 2002. When The Haven first launched we had just two staff; however, we were incredibly fortunate to have 20 wonderful volunteers who could immediately see the benefits of having such a place in their local community and so came on board.
The volunteers did everything they could to get the centre up and running - from sourcing furniture to spreading the word, nothing was too much for them.
All these years later and many of our volunteers are still here and bring so much to the centre. Over the years the numbers of staff and volunteers have both grown substantially.
Without the support of our volunteers and the local community of Blantyre, The Haven would not have been able to grow in the way it has and it would not have been able to sustain another two centres.
