The Family Haven
About this volunteer-involving organisation
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.
