Haven has been active in Sheffield since 1975. haven is the only organisation in sheffield to focus solely on providing specialist services to children affected by domestic abuse.

We support children and young people (aged 5-16) who have been affected by domestic abuse that has taken place in their parents' (or other significant adults') relationship.  

We are an independent organisation and as we no longer receive money from the council, we rely solely on grants and donations to do our work. As a result of successful independence, grant awards and fundraising we are able to use creative and engaging techniques to provide vital services to improve the lives of children and young people who have fled domestic abuse.

Our Vision: A world free from domestic abuse where children are safe and their voices are heard

Our Mission: to provide support and care for children, young people and their families in South Yorkshire affected by domestic abuse, to improve their health, safety and emotional well-being. 

We will do this through:

  • The design and delivery of services to those who need us
  • Preventative and awareness education and
  • Campaigning and research

to ensure no life is damaged by domestic abuse.
