Our monthly art group is open to the women who are accessing support with Haven. We’ve found that bringing the women together as a group and making something different each session gives everyone a sense of achievement, reduces isolation and improves mental well being.

As the women build their confidence in attending our art group they become more confident in joining other community groups, and from there can go on to develop long term support networks in their community.

The women really appreciate coming along to the art group, as one group member said:

My experiences have put me off going to courses because I think everyone’s going to judge me….the only place I don’t feel like that is Haven’s art group...I can’t wait to get there, it relieves all your stress, talking rubbish and making something beautiful!

We make a wide range of fantastic crafts – here are some of our favourites...
