The Sanctuary trust Pass it on Scheme has gone live this month.

The 'Pass It On' Scheme (PIOS) recognises the valuable contribution persons with lived experience (of challenging situations) can offer disadvantaged people, those at risk of disadvantage and the wider Community. 

There is no experience like first-hand experience; people that have lived through tough challenges have lots to offer to those people that are currently going through the same. 

The PIOS will provide an opportunity for persons with lived experience to safely pass on their knowledge, experience and the interventions they received to the next cohort of disadvantaged people

To help members 'pass it on' safely we provide all members with robust training and development opportunities. 

Special congratulations to Brain (top). He has just completed a counselling concepts course through ACORN recovery.  Marc (bottom) who has just completed accredited qualifications in first aid, safeguarding, Health and safety in the work place and assessing risk.

Verse of the Day

Sanctuary Trust works with homelessness and homeless related poverty and emergency homeless issues. God's Sanctuary was the vision of Sheila Halsall after seeing the level of homelessness Rochdale and later the homelessness Conwy and the substance misuse such as Drugs and Alcohol. By Providing emergency shelter for the homeless in supported housing services funded mainly through Supporting People we assist other providers such as Shelter homelessness, Petrus and Stepping Stones who are also supporting people through women's and men's hostels and floating support. We also have a Nightstop (crash pad). With our work in Wales we partner with Welsh Assembly Government (WAG) as they provide financial help for homeless through emergency shelter and their Supporting People funds. There are different kinds of accommodation available but what is needed is good quality supported accommodation with a strong business and development plan. We have also provided consultancy service to help others move closer to an answer to homelessness. Our social enterprise company, Sanctuary Trust Enterprises runs Noah's Ark Play Centre, The Storehouse Charity Shop.
