Haven House is a dedicated space for carers. The name was chosen by local carers in a competition. The space is run BY carers FOR carers.

  • a variety of arts and crafts
  • games, books, ‘chill’ space areas
  • a kitchen for social lunch events and for cookery sessions (e.g. healthy eating, cake decorations)
  • a ‘quiet’ space – the ‘Blue’ room: a calming space where carers can have: counselling, prayers, meditation, massage or just take 5 minutes out of a busy and stressful day
  • a training/meeting room
  • space for yoga, dance etc.

We also go out into the community and support other carers in neighbourhoods. See programme for community events or ask us more about this by telephoning 01332-227711.
