The Haven, Belfast

The Haven is a supported housing service which provides safe accommodation, care and support for 12 adults who are experiencing mental health issues.

The service is a home for life but also promotes independence, encouraging tenants to gain all the living skills required to live in their own homes. The service offers a person-centered approach to mental health and wellbeing, positively focusing on helping tenants to achieve life goals to help them improve and manage their mental health and wellbeing.


"When I moved in I bottled things up and didn't talk to anyone about my problems, now I know I can talk to any member of staff and they will help me."
