Conwy Foodbank has received £15,000 from Steve Morgan Foundation to help combat impact of Covid 19

The Covid 19 outbreak threatened to close the Sanctuary trust run Conwy food bank.  The project is run by volunteers, but many of the volunteers are in high risk groups and are therefore unavailable to continue serving at this important local provision.    

Thanks to the Steve Morgan foundation, the Sanctuary Trust has procured addition funds to increase the hours of our paid worker so that she can now lone work within the food bank and keep this important local provision going. 

In the month of March, the food bank provided a total of 137 food parcels to households across County Conwy.  Closing this project at this most crucial time would have had a devastating impact on the local community.

Thanks to supporters like Steve Morgan foundation, the Sanctuary trust will rise to the challenges brought about by covid 19

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.
