Meet The Team

Coming together from a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences, our skilled team of professionals is the backbone of Karen's Safe Haven. Their ideas help shape the direction and mission of our organisation as it continues to develop. Read on to learn more about some of our incredible team members.


Karen Bentham

Director of Operations
Northallerton Facilitator

Karen is the founder and spearhead of the organisation.  From an idea and concept she has watched and driven this initiative to grow and is looking forward to oversee the expansion to help as many people as is possible.
Throughout all my struggles over the years I have never given up.  This had made me more determined to help as many others who may be going through their own struggles with mental health.


John Oxton

Director of Communications

I joined Karen's Safe Haven with the vision and drive to improve upon our charitable organisation.  Focussing on developing the organisation with experience and integrity.  I want to help make a difference.
When I first spoke to Karen about this I was blown away, and continue to be so, in her passion and dedication in making a change.  Belief in oneself is amongst the most powerful of tools.


Abby Watson

Head of Marketing
Locations Team

I previously worked in healthcare for 10 years, for the NHS until I left to become a full-time mum. I like to support charities whenever possible and after following Karen's story and seeing her bravery, I was inspired to offer my help. I believe as a community, we all need to do our part in supporting others and raising awareness
