Kids Haven protects and cares for children in crisis, and empowers families, children and communities to build safe and caring spaces for all.
Our first priority is to keep children SAFE. Once a child is safe, he or she is able to play, go to school and grow.
Section 150 of The Children’s Act 2005
“The government has to take action to protect children…if a child: has been abandoned and is without any visible means of support; displays behaviour which cannot be controlled by the parent or caregiver; lives or works on the streets or begs for a living; or has been abused, neglected, or exploited.”
“Because I am always protected and I am kept here to be safe, and I’m always given
a second chance.“
“They look after us, they give us love, and take care of us!“
At Kids Haven, children are living with someone who cares for them. The children have a community where they fit in and enjoy a sense of belonging. Children attend school, play sport, participate in dance and drama and are encouraged to support each other and be generous.
We apply the tried-and-tested methodology of structure and routine to provide an environment conducive to behavioural change – ‘the perfect place to practise being good’.
Education is vital. All children need to be in school and learning, reaching and succeeding at the highest grade possible.
Kids Haven includes every child in an education programme; in the Kids Haven Community pre-school, the Kids Haven bridging school programme, attending the most suitable formal school, and participating in the Kids Haven youth skills development programme.
“I am where I am today because they taught me to value education and have a purpose in life.”
