Aben At Halsall House



Winter is approaching and we are already full to capacity at the step project and the ABEN provision. 

The Sanctuary trust has been coming up with new ways to increase our ABEN capacity at no extra cost to the local authority. 

Introducing Halsall House ABEN response service.  We will provide aben provision for vulnerable people that can provide a clean drug test from our Halsall house supported housing provision.  As well as overnight emergency accommodation, eligible aben clients will have access to cleaning facilities, food and clothing.  We aim to work closely with our guests to identify more appropriate move on accommodation while meeting the immediate basic needs.  Once again Sanctuary trust rises to the challenges of homelessness in  the Borough of Rochdale

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.
