ARC Communities SLA

Since 2010 our CEO has been a director of a small charity in North Wales called ARC communities. He got to know ARC's CEO Ruth Cole when she was a Clwyd Cornerstone Trust director at the time we merged the two charities.

Ruth has been with ARC Communities since its inception and was, in fact, instrumental in establishing the organisation back in 2009. During her time with ARC she has not only managed it exceptionally well but has also developed several additional services all of which have helped to support some of the neediest people in their local communities.

Ruth tendered her notice with ARC Communities earlier this year and ARC's board of Directors asked if Sanctuary Trust would take on the management responsibilities of their five projects.So we have signed a six month Service Level Agreement to meet this need.

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.
