Island Community Haven CIC

The Island Community Haven is a Community Interest Company (CIC) that is powered by community spirit and a passion for animal welfare.

The farm currently houses 32 animals on our 3-acre farm space in Draycott, Derby. Each animal has its own amazing story of how it came to live at the farm and how they are thriving today. By helping, not only do you become part of their story, but you become part of our community.

Alongside our animal sanctuary, the Haven offers other services such as alternative provision, summer schemes, youth clubs and weekly community meet-ups
