Next induction - Saturday 13 July 10am - 12 at Haven House. Please get in touch to book your space.


We are looking for volunteers to help with all of the events below. If you can help with anything please get in touch.

Town Shows
We often get asked to attend local fetes and fairs over the spring and summer months and need volunteer support by attending some of these and representing Haven House. We usually have a game or activity to engage with members of the public. We need two volunteers to help, and we just ask that one person of the pair has transport to help take over items for the stand. We will fully support in planning games, providing prizes and marketing material for the day. We already have some dates for a few fairs, and we have included these below. If anyone can help, please do get in touch.
