Connecting with residents about what matters to them and promoting the benefits of supported housing is really important to us at Sanctuary Supported Living.

Through national campaigns, we can collectively make a difference and promote inclusion for all, by raising awareness of the challenges faced by the people we support.

Read about some of the national campaigns that we support and have been involved with.

World Homeless Day is marked annually around the world on 10 October. It aims to raise awareness of the needs of homeless people and how to help make a difference in the community. Read more about the accommodation and personalised support we provide for people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, or read residents’ stories.

Starts At Home Day, which is led by the National Housing Federation, is an opportunity to celebrate the importance of supported housing services, like those run by Sanctuary Supported Living. Our supported housing services provide tailored accommodation, care and support for some of the most vulnerable people in our communities.

We believe that with the right housing and support in place, these people can turn their lives around, make positive changes for the future and feel confident that they can live as independently as possible. Read our resident stories for real-life experiences of how supported accommodation can give people the chance they need to turn their lives around, including our latest story from Joe, a young person who hasn’t had an easy start in life but now has a happy and promising future ahead.
