Along with amazing volunteers, Sanctus remained open. While the streets were empty, Sanctus continued to feed the vulnerable and even created, on a free basis like all Sanctus services, a food delivery service for those who had been temporarily housed. Sanctus was the only available route for food for so many during that period.
Additionally, a huge decision was considered carefully and then made, it was obvious the pandemic would have a major impact on the health, housing status and financial security of so many. The decision was made to move to new, much larger premises, close by again on Broomfield Road, three times the size of the original café with room to seat 60+, along with dedicated rooms for the Hub and also room for other organisations and charities to utilise while providing key services to people in need of support.
