At Haven House we look after mums, dads, carers siblings and grandparents making sure they have somewhere to turn to when times are hard. Carers can find support at our Dads’ Group they can share their experiences and challenges and talk in a supportive environment.

Our dads meet at the hospice or in a casual setting where they can talk and support each other. There's no pressure and they can also just relax and catch up. 

Recently they met on a weekend and went for a walk in the beautiful surroundings of Highams Park. They then returned to the hospice for sandwiches and coffee where they were able to chat and share experiences. Dad's group was initally set up to address the needs of dads who are caring for or who have supported life-limited children. It offers a forum for dads to talk, develop friendships and enjoy time together. 

Watch our film and learn more about how we are here to support the whole family.

We are all working hard with our personal struggles and keeping a practical finger on our families, dad's need to talk too. Haven House recognises this and are working closely to talk to and help dads who could be struggling emotionally.

The group has helped to overcome obstacles by talking to others who are in, or have gone through similar circumstances and understand how things are for me as a parent.
