Haven Horizons: Ending Relationship Abuse - Breaking The Cycleshutterstock_300549608

After 20 years working to establish frontline domestic abuse services, it became very apparent that relationship abuse is a significant and complex, intergenerational, societal issue which requires a wide range of intervention and prevention strategies.

A charity shop was set-up to provide a source of income that could support frontline intervention services: helpline, refuge accommodation, outreach and support services (Clare Haven) and prevention activities: research, developing accredited training programmes, systems change projects and piloting evidence-based models of good practice (Haven Horizons).

Thanks to the generosity of the people of Clare and the hard work of the shop staff and volunteers, the charity shop continues to grow and expand its range of products with clothes, shoes, jewellery, household goods, books and furniture on offer at the shops on the Gort Road. The Charity Shop is administered by Haven Horizons.
