Our current services are as follows...
24 HOUR CONFIDENTIAL HELPLINE
Clare Haven operates a confidential help line (065 6822435) offering support, empathy and understanding, as well as information on options available to women experiencing domestic violence.
Clare Haven operates a drop-in centre in Munster House, Gort Road Business Park, Gort Road, Ennis where we provide one-on-one support for women. Women can drop in at any stage for a chat or for information or support. After the first visit women are then seen on an appointment basis.
Clare Haven runs three outreach clinics throughout the county in Shannon, Kilrush, Scariff and Ennistymon. At the outreach clinics women receive one-to-one support from a Clare Haven clientcare worker.
INSIGHTS EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMME FOR WOMEN
We run an educational and development programme for women called 'Insights'. The programme focuses on the woman herself and her power to change the course of her life. Detailed information leaflet available.
COURT AND OTHER ACCOMPANIMENT
We offer court accompaniment to women who are seeking Protection, Safety or Barring Orders. We also offer to accompany women to legal aid, doctors, social welfare etc.
EDUCATION AWARENESS AND PREVENTION PROGRAMMES
Clare Haven Services believes that one of the most effective ways to help reduce and eliminate domestic abuse in our society is through preventative education and awareness raising and training. Clare Haven regularly gives awareness raising talks on domestic abuse to second-level schools and training centers.
Our training unit also runs training and gives awareness talks to voluntary and community groups; statutory agencies and professionals working in front-line services. To book training or awareness raising talks please contact us on 065 6842646.
INTERAGENCY WORK AND REFERRALS
It is difficult for one agency on its own to address all aspects of domestic abuse. Many other agencies and organisations also have a role to play in preventing domestic abuse, protecting and supporting survivors of domestic abuse and holding perpetrators accountable. Clare Haven works closely with other statutory and voluntary groups to provide a holistic service to women and children.
