Additionally, a huge 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. This would also allow for many other organisations and charities to utilise the space, whilst providing key services to our expanding vulnerable community.
Alongside the pandemic, the building was secured and the funds were raised for a major fit-out which took six months to complete. The doors were opened in July 2021, and the result has been transformational for Sanctus and the community accessing our services. The Café and the Hub have grown exponentially and many other organisations and charities are using the building to create a safety net of support essential to maintaining independence, dignity and good health for the community of people coming through Sanctus doors.
