Good news coming from the Community Champions

Stewart is a man who has recently moved into his own flat. However, until recently Stewart was living in emergency accommodation seeking support to meet his resettlement needs and ensure he was tenancy ready.

Our Community Champions have been able to supply items which Stewart did not have and have delivered them to his new accommodation.

Not only this, Stewart has signed up to The Pass It On scheme enabling him to volunteer within The Sanctuary Trust.

By doing this Stewart is able to build valuable skills for future development. Also, Stewart can volunteer within the Sanctuary Storehouse (charity shop) which will enable him to be physically and socially active.

The Sanctuary team wished Stewart the best of luck and have made him aware that he can access future support should he require it.

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.
