The Haven Project, Colchester Essex, CLOSURE

Hi everyone,

I am a client of this service and any support you could offer would be greatly appreciated :)

"A support service for people suffering personality disorders is on the verge of closure when it stops receiving funding this month.

The Haven Project, in Glen Avenue, Colchester, provides round-the-clock crisis care to 300 clients, some of whom are suicidal.

An online petition asking the Government to continue funding the project has been signed by nearly 2,000 people.

The project was set up ten years ago as one of 11 NHS-funded pilot projects.

The funding stops on October 1 and the scheme has unsuccessfully appealed to the North East Essex Clinical Commissioning Group to help pay for it."
