Converge Membership

Sanctuary Trust is a full member of Greater Manchester's Council for Voluntary Services' Health & Well Being Consortium CONVERGE.

Converge provides a way for voluntary sector organisations to enter the contracts market. It does this by providing a central 'hub' function which takes a lot of the work needed around bidding for contracts away from voluntary sector organisations.

Joining converge is a similar process to completing a Pre Qualifation Questionairre PQQ for contracting. GMCVO'S Neil Walbran is a most helpful person and will talk any propective organisation through the process

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.
