WHO WE ARE
OUR CORE VALUES
We are the only day centre in mid-Essex catering for this client group, helping people 7 days per week, 365 days per year. Sanctus is currently open 6 days a week (November to February) and 5 days over the warmer months. We hope to expand our reach in the future, funding permitting.
The purpose of our organisation is to provide a centre in the heart of the city where individuals, with various complex needs, can come and receive food and support. This is a community space, which we invite other key service providers to utilise, to generate an integrated approach to supporting individuals.
We believe that everyone should have a safe and secure home, food on the table and a network of support. Our aim is to be there for vulnerable people in a moment of crisis and provide them with the necessary help. From this moment, we then work alongside them in their journey to help them to take steps to lead a positive life.
What is unique about our services, is there are no criteria to receive our support. Our work is person-centred, meaning we tailor our support offering to each individual. We aim to help vulnerable individuals to build confidence and trust in support services, so they can receive help both from us and other agencies and statutory services.

We can’t accomplish this on our own. There are a variety of ways in which you can contribute to our efforts to support the homeless and vulnerable.
We always need donations so we can continue to provide our services.
Are you looking to donate money or essential items?
Thank you to our partners and sponsors for the kind donations and support. Your aid allows us to provide the best services and care to the most vulnerable people in the community.
Waterhouse Business Park has chosen Sanctus as their charity of the year 2023.
LOOKERS of Dukes Park Chelmsford are supporting Sanctus with the arrival of our Brand New Ford Transit van.
We are extremely grateful to LOOKERS for such a fantastic donation to our Charity, the need for a van has been on our list for a long time, and having the use of our own van means we can organise collections of food, supplies and help service users move home without having to rely on the good nature of people we know who have vans.
This has made all our lives much easier and we cannot thank LOOKERS enough.
