STEP Celebrate their 6th Birthday!

The Sanctuary Trust Emergency Provision Celebrates its 6th Birthday

The STEP Project has been providing emergency overnight accommodation for rough sleepers for 6 years.

In this time we have accommodated 905 Rochdale citizens and helped some of our most vulnerable members of the community improve health, life skills, relationships, resettlement and vocational outcomes.

Jody (STEP Project team leader) says, 'we have changed a lot since we opened back in 2013, we have made some mistakes along the way but I'm proud to be part of this team - we give 100% and are always keen to develop new ways to help people move on.'

If you would like to financially support the work that goes on at the STEP Project, or if you would like to volunteer for the Service, please do get in touch there are many ways you can get involved.

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.
