Sanctuary Supported Living featured in ‘Caring in Covid’ e-book

18 December 2020

The National Care Forum (NCF) has recently published an e-book featuring stories about ‘Caring in Covid’ from across the social care sector, which includes two stories from Sanctuary Supported Living’s services.


One story, included in the ‘Keeping it fun’ section, featured Old Milton Road supported housing service for people with learning disabilities in New Milton. Staff came up with an ingenious way to use one resident’s love of penguins and the film ‘Madagascar’ to help all the residents understand social distancing.

The second story, which features in the final section, ‘The many faces of leadership’, is Sanctuary Supported Living’s Operations Director, Sara Keetley, sharing her story and talking about the many successes that have happened this year, despite the pressure and stress of the pandemic. Recent success stories include Hilltop House in Bury St Edmunds becoming Sanctuary Supported Living’s fifth service to receive an Outstanding rating from the Care Quality Commission (CQC). Several services have also been nominated or won at industry awards, such as the Housing Heroes Awards, the 2019-20 national finals and the 2020-21 regional finals of the Great British Care Awards.

To read Sanctuary Supported Living’s contributions to the ‘Caring in Covid’, see pages 81 and 127 of the e-book on the NCF website. For more information about Sanctuary Supported Living’s services, read our resident stories or find a service near you.
