Activities

The HAVEN offers a wide range of activities to suit all. We offer both group and quiet activities to allow people to build confidence and socialise with a mixture of different people, from different backgrounds. So whether you are arty, musical or have a mind bursting with thoughts that you would like to get down on paper – there is always an activity to suit your needs.

Here is a flavour of the activities we offer at the HAVEN. For a full programme please get in touch with a member of the team. We are constantly seeking ideas for new activities and groups for the HAVEN so please get in contact if you have an idea or would like to develop or lead a group.

Current Activities

MuBe Music Group

Learn to play an instrument and write lyrics to create your very own song. Learn skills in recording and production and build confidence with live performances in the HAVEN and other community centres.

Craft Group

Let your artistic mind wander. Each week you will learn new skills, design and make different crafty objects. Take them home to show your loved ones, decorate the HAVEN or even help raise money by selling your items at our fundraising events.

Knitting Group

Learn new skills in knitting and crochet. Make scarfs for the winter or outfits for the little ones. With help and guidance, you will be a natural knitter.

Walking Group

Let your legs do the talking. Walking is fantastic for our physical and mental health. Get outdoors with a group of like minded friends and see the hidden treasures Dundee has to offer. We only walk as fast as the slowest walker and keep the distance of our walks short with little hills or challenging terrain.

Creative Writing Group

Ever thought that your life story would make a great book? Want to improve your writing techniques? Our Creative Writing Group will fill you with confidence to get the words in your head on to paper.
