Haven House

Haven House is one of three refuges within Sheffield that provide safe, temporary and emergency accommodation and support to women and children who have fled physical, emotional and sexual abuse. Haven House is often the first step to a better way of life for these women who are helped to move on, find a safe home and begin their new lives.

The Haven House Project was established in 1978 and has since helped thousands of women and children get their lives back on track, in the past year alone they have helped almost 60 women and over 100 children. It provides specialist support and advice as well as therapeutic opportunities, activities and family based work. The projects and services aim to form strong trusting relationships with the residents in order to help them build secure and confident lives.

How did UK Steel Enterprise help?

The charity was supported through the UK Steel Enterprise Charitable Fund, alongside the Cllr Jackie Drayton Grassroots fund and the Sir Hugh and Lady Sykes Charitable Trust fund, with a grant of £3,000 which will help it run a variety of events throughout the year for women and children living in refuges in Sheffield.

What has this support meant?

Jo Rudd from Haven House, said: “We are so grateful for the money from UK Steel Enterprise. We are using the grant to fund a variety of events over the year for women and children from all three refuges.

We try to arrange one event per month such as a fire sculpture event and outdoor cooking on bonfire night and a Christmas party with an entertainer who had all the children and mothers laughing for a couple of hours - so far all of them have been great successes.”
