Dear Friends and Supporters,
We hope this e-newsletter finds you well. At The Haven, we are committed to making a difference in the lives of families, individuals, and carers affected by life-limiting illness and bereavement. It's our mission to provide vital emotional, practical, wellbeing and bereavement support to adults, children, young people and carers who need our support. We are excited to share an incredible opportunity that could make a significant difference in the lives of the children and young people we support, but we need your help to make it a reality.
We have been nominated for a wonderful grant opportunity that could provide us with £5,000 to continue delivering essential support to children and young people in our community.
The Haven’s Children, Young People and Families Service helps to support children and young people to feel resilient and strong, enabling them to understand their own emotions and to be confident enough to share the natural feelings of loss when someone they care about is seriously ill or has died.
Experiences of family illness, grief, loss and bereavement can have a significant adverse impact on children and young people which, if not supported, can have long-term interpersonal, emotional, social, behavioural and academic impacts lasting in to adulthood.
This £5,000 grant will enable us to sustain vital Haven support services that make a real difference to the lives of the children and young people we support throughout Lanarkshire and beyond.
Here's How You Can Help Every vote counts, and your support will bring us one step closer to securing this grant. Together, we can create a positive impact for the children and young people we support.

1:1 and group support sessions provide children and young people with a regular, stable and positive focus in their lives where they can look forward to having fun, relaxing and being themselves. A trusting relationship is built between the young person and Haven
