Kerry (Director) I am passionate about the rights of children and young people to live their lives free from violence and abuse. I am determined to work with the team at HAVEN and other agencies to make that a reality for as many children and young people as possible. Until then, I will use the skills, knowledge and experience I have gained to ensure they become visible (are seen and heard) and that HAVEN develops support and services that are relevant and appropriate and help to limit the impact of the abuse they have survived or live with, so they can achieve their potential and be as safe as possible.

Nina (Administrator) I feel passionately that every child deserves to be safe, to be listened to and to have the best possible start in life. This is why I feel everything we do at HAVEN is so important. You won’t always see me, but my “behind the scenes” presence helps ensure the service runs smoothly.

Lynne (Trustee) Having grown up with Domestic Abuse, I was aware of the wide ranging impact that this can have. I was keen to try and help children currently experiencing that same situation. As a trustee, my strengths lie in an understanding of child development. My main interest is in developing support strategies for teachers who work with children experiencing domestic abuse.
