From tin collections, to support with activities for the women and children in refuge and within the community, our volunteers continue to be the heartbeat of our work.
Volunteering at The Haven
Volunteers enable us to do more and reach more people. Without them, the impact of what we do would not be the same. We encourage individuals who are passionate about women’s rights, ending violence against women and girls and making a difference, to join our team and help us shape a better future. We support, champion and work in partnership with other organisations, recognising that we can achieve more when we work together.
