The Family Haven

The Family Haven

The Family Haven was founded to provide practical help and support to vulnerable families with children under 5 in Gloucestershire.

As their name suggests, they provide a ‘haven’ for young families living in extremely difficult circumstances, and aim to help them improve the quality of their lives. 

Sarah* and her two young children had recently moved to the area, after fleeing terrible domestic violence. Alone and in a new city, they had no family or friends around them to provide support, and had fled with very little money and few possessions. 

She explains: “I was very alone and struggling to pay for food for the children so The Family Haven arranged a referral to the food bank and signposted me to other support services to help with benefit claims and housing so we could get back on our feet. 

They also provided clothes and toys from their second hand store for Isaac* and Rebecca*, which was wonderful and really helped them have some normality. Thank you.” 

Global’s Make Some Noise is proud to be able to support this project, which is a real lifeline to the families it supports. Without The Family Haven, many of them would slip through the net, becoming even more isolated and fearful, and with their children lacking in the necessary social and emotional skills to enter school. 

*While the story above is true, names may have been changed to protect the family’s privacy.
