Hafan Cymru

Hafan Cymru supports people who find themselves in situations that mean they can’t or don’t know how to live safely. They help them find their feet, reach goals, and find independence. Sometimes it’s about sharing a new approach. Sometimes it’s by finding somewhere safe to live. Sometimes it’s through a range of services that are tailored to each individual situation. Hafan Cymru has been doing this for over thirty years: helping men, women and families to build the confidence to make the changes they need to, so that they can lead the positive life everyone has a right to hope for.

Hafan Cymru’s current Chief Executive Sian Morgan is due to retire at the end of September 2023 and is leaving the organisation in great shape for a new Chief Executive. The Chief Executive will work closely with the new Chair, Hugh Irwin and the Board of Management as Hafan Cymru enter the next stage of their development, which will see the organisation reinvigorated for years to come.
