Here is a great video of just some of our lovely clients and of the volunteers.
We want to thank you for helping us to stay open.
With your help we are now preparing to open what we are calling the SANCTUS SUPPORT HUB.
Not only are we going to continue offering our vunerable friends’ food and a safe warm cafe to use, we are also going to be supporting them in many other ways to help them move forward.
We could not have got this far with the hub without your help so thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
The SANCTUS SUPPORT HUB will have longer opening hours offering help and support with doctors’ appointments, job applications, cv writing, housing and benefit assistance, along with signposting to outside agencies, training and forging relationships to be able to house people quickly. We will offer all sorts of specialised counselling, a lot of it one to one.
BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP! Although some of the help we can get is free we need more specialised help and quite a bit of it. We need £25,000 for running costs for the Hub for the first 6 months.
We know it’s a big ask please please see if you can dig deep and donate to our new HUB. Lets see if between us we can help get some of these lovely people a home and a future!
