Meanwhile, as we are in the 6th week of the covid19 lockdown, I wanted to give a message of support to all victims and survivors .

I know it will be a nightmare for those of you that are locked in with your abusers and you are in our thoughts at this difficult time.

I also want to let you all know that Haven is still providing a service and both myself and Fauzia are ready to take your calls or emails.

But PLEASE don’t take any risks with your personal safety.

We are here for you during the COVID-19 lockdown and we'll be here when it’s over.

Much Love

Chris & Fauzia X
