About The Family Haven
The Family Haven is a small local charity, established in 1988 to help disadvantaged and vulnerable families in Gloucestershire to a brighter future. The charity provides a warm, caring and supportive day centre, where assistance and encouragement are available to help them to improve the quality of their lives.
The charity is based in Spa Road, Gloucester, and provides practical help and support to deprived, disadvantaged and vulnerable families with pre-school children. It predominantly helps families living in B&B or unsuitable accommodation, those with mental health issues, victims of domestic abuse and pre-school children with special needs. Many of the families supported experience social isolation and feel excluded from the community. The charity positively engages with these families through a programme of activities, to help them feel valued and included, in turn improving their sense of self-worth.
