The Haven - The Survivors' Network

Waltham Forest Haven provides confidential counselling for survivors of Childhood Sexual Violence/Abuse, Domestic Violence, Torture, Emotional, Mental and Physical Abuse. We also have a group where survivors feel safe and can share their worries confidentially, explore and discover new ways of dealing with their abuse and find their voice to reach beyond themselves to help others. We provide an opportunity in which survivors of abuse can share their experiences, recovery process and hopes and aspirations for the future.

Waltham Forest Haven aims to improve the public’s understanding and awareness of the complex issues surrounding Sexual Violence/Abuse and Domestic Violence and work in partnership with schools, the Police, Victim Support, Social Services, Courts and other relevant statutory and voluntary agencies and reduce the need for medical and mental health care, loss of time at work and reduction of repeat victimisation.

WF Haven also aims to reduce the many effects of suffering that victims of abuse endure through lack of confidence, vulnerability, isolation and stigma which can lead to a fear of engaging with the wider community, also to support those going through the court process as victims/witnesses and to ensure that we have a specialist team to work with clients that have Special Needs, Mental Health Issues, Sensory Disabilities and those deemed vulnerable through Homelessness, Self Harm, Food Disorders, Substance Abuse and Suicidal Tendencies
