Haven Network – For Survivors of Abuse…
Haven Network is unique in that it is the only organisation in Waltham Forest and the surrounding London boroughs that offers a specific service to victims of sexual violence and/or sexual abuse and domestic violence.
Haven supports, assists and empowers young people and adults who have suffered incest, childhood sexual violence or and/or abuse, domestic violence, physical, mental and emotional abuse, rape and torture.
Haven was founded in 1982 by Chris Casey, herself a survivor of abuse, who realised that there was a lack of services for victims of Childhood Sexual Abuse and Incest.
Initially called Waltham Forest Incest Survivors Group, it was based firstly at the Waltham Forest Women’s Centre and then at Greater London House in Leytonstone, before moving to its present premises in The Peterhouse Community Centre in Walthamstow.
The change in name was a natural progression that followed the increase of referrals covering all forms and aspects of sexual abuse. The Haven is a registered charity.
