Christmas at The Haven


Below you will find all the information you need on how you can help us spread some festive cheer to the women and children we support this Christmas. 

Domestic abuse doesn’t stop at Christmas

For those recovering from the trauma of abuse or fleeing to us for safety over the festive period, it can be a dark and difficult time. Many women staying at The Haven often worry about how they will make Christmas special for their children.

That’s where YOU come in!

Your support this Christmas could help to spread some festive cheer and can help to ensure we are able to provide an authentic Christmas experience for the women and children with all of the trimmings! There are so many ways you can get involved.
Take a look below to find out how you can make Christmas wishes come true…

How can you help?

Double your Donation via The Big Give Challenge

You can help The Haven to provide 121 and group therapies, activities, and day trips for children who have been subjected to domestic abuse so they can make happier memories this festive season and into 2024. Your donation will be DOUBLED at no cost to you or The Haven by donating between 28 November – 5 December by clicking on the link below.

I never knew joy could be wrapped in paper and bows. Thank you so much. The kids have had such a good Christmas.

Festive fun at work

Spread the holiday cheer by hosting a Christmas Jumper Day at your workplace to raise funds for The Haven. Wear your festive best and make a difference. Let us bring cheer and support to those in need this season!

As I open my Christmas gifts in my new home, I am reminded that even as I am building a new life, I am not alone, thanks to everyone at The Haven.

Donating Gifts!

Can you help us ensure our refuges are filled with gifts by Christmas Eve? We would love to accept new, unopened toys for children ages 0-16 and gifts for women too!

Santa’s Sleigh will be leaving The Haven workshop on Friday 15th December and so all gift donations must be with us by this point to ensure we can get them out to refuge in time.

Thank You & Merry Christmas

Thank you so much for your support and kindness, and may we take this opportunity to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas.
