HOMELESSNESS FRIENDLY SUPPLIES TO HELP PROTECT AGAINST COVID 19

The sanctuary Trust has received 40 emergency kits to help our us respond to the threat of Covid 19.  Comprising of Hand sanitizer, face mask, gloves and other material, we have been able to provide rough sleepers in the Borough of Rochdale with potentially lifesaving equipment during this difficult period.

Homeless-Friendly encourages organisations to lead the way in creating a cultural shift in how we view those without a permanent home and remind them they are a pivotal part of our society. Organised by not-for-profit social enterprise Beacon GP CARE, it asks that we examine the way we conduct our business and pledge to become Homeless-Friendly. NHS surgeries and other healthcare providers are amongst the first to make that commitment but any public, voluntary or private organisation can join in.  We offer advice on how to become Homeless-Friendly, encourage our pledgers to share good practice and work with our partners to offer practical support to the homeless and tackle the roots of the problem.

The Sanctuary Trust would like to thank the homelessness friendly network for their invaluable support.

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.
