The Sanctuary Trust has a new Outreach team


The Sanctuary Trust is pleased to announce we have been commissioned by Oldham and Rochdale Council to provide an outreach service. 

Rob Rowe, our pass it on team manager, will oversee our new outreach workers Alison Harrison and Walter Mahon (above) as they look to proactively engage rough sleepers in an effort to reduce rough sleeping across the two local authorities.

Rob said, 'thanks to our pass it on team (funded by Lottery) and our Crisis team (funded by Lloyds foundation) we feel we are well placed to deliver this important service across Rochdale and Oldham.  We expect our outreach team to work hand in hand with our other funded projects to provide a seamless service from rough sleeping to full reintegration and recovery.

If you would like to volunteer and be part of the solution to homelessness in Rochdale, you can get in touch by emailing [email protected] or call us on 01706 526722

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.
