The Haven Way – Group Award Nominee – 2013

The Haven Way is an offshoot of The Haven Wolverhampton. Female survivors of DV act as volunteers and peer mentors, providing support to service users in the Refuge. Recently they have expanded into campaigning, raising awareness of DV in the wider community through exhibitions, fundraising events, interviews with local media, and they have published a book of creative writing by survivors.

The Haven Way has participated in a variety of consultations on how to improve women’s services in relation to DV. They fundraise to support their projects, and have begun applying for external funding but do not receive any at the moment.
