About Us

Our Objective

FordHaven is not just a place, it's a community hub where emotional, social, and educational growth are nurtured. Children from diverse backgrounds, each with their unique story and needs, come here to form bonds, explore new interests, and develop a sense of belonging.

FordHaven's commitment to holistic development ensures that every child is seen, heard, and valued. In this space, children are encouraged to be curious, creative, and confident. Whether it's through an art project, a nature walk, or a quiet moment with a book, the experiences at FordHaven are led by the young person and are designed to enrich and empower them. 

FordHaven is a hub where the potential of every child is recognised and nurtured, where children can discover their strengths and build lasting, positive memories.

We are Roxana (Roxie) & Paul Ford, the founders of FordHaven and parents to three wonderful young people aged 24, 20 & 15. 

We have over 10 years fostering experience where we have gained vaulable knowledge of childrens needs and this has deeply influenced us to make sure this much needed resource in Somerset exists.

 We believe that creating positive experiences enables children to flourish and reach their full potential. 

We both had a very different upbringings and that equips us both with qualities that when combined together, makes us a stronger team when it comes to advocating for children & young people.
