Who We Are

HAFWAY was established in 1998 in response to a need for youth work provision in the area of Halliwell. Since then HAFWAY has grown and developed with the needs of the community and became a registered charity in 2010. With over 200 young people currently accessing the provision of HAFWAY each year it has become a vital resource for young people within the community. 


HAFWAY is run by 2 full time qualified youth workers; Moira Frew - Lead Community Youth Worker and Esther Peggs - Community Youth Worker as well as a part time Youth Worker - Becky Fraser. They are ably supported by a strong team of volunteers and a committed board of trustees.


HAFWAY has a strong Christian ethos with much of its initial support and input coming from the local Christian community. We continue to operate with Christian love in action being the motivator for what we do. We pride ourselves on our acceptance of all young people regardless of their religion, ethnicity, sexuality, gender or social and economic standing and we are committed to walking alongside young people as they discover their identity and find their place in the world.
