We regularly review and evaluate our work with parents using scaling techniques drawn from solution-focussed brief therapy. This approach allows parents to shape the support they receive, helps them to see any progress they’re making and enables us to measure our impact as an organisation.

Parents who work with us show the following changes:

  • 65%

    Improved understanding and participation in the court process

  • 61%

    Improved mental health

  • 69%

    Reduction in isolation, increase in support networks

Haven Project outcomes 2015-2019

We work intensively with each parent for up to 18 months, with the option of a further 6 -12 months support from a Haven volunteer mentor where needed. Since 2011 there have been only 2 sets of recurrent proceedings involving Haven Project parents in the time they worked with us.
