Pensarn Community Shop

Pensarn Community Shop is a charity shop with a difference. Sanctuary Trust are developing an engagement project through retail whereby we are able to provide affordable second hand goods to the community of Pensarn and work and train existing volunteers in retail and marketing, increasing employability.

We extend the organisation's reach and accessibility to current Sanctuary Trust participants and potential beneficiaries living within this locality, an area characterised by significant levels of social disadvantage and poor quality rental accommodation, and in doing so, provide support, guidance and sign posting services from our onsite office; whist providing another source of sustainable income.

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 STEP Emergency overnight provision. 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.
