At Sanctus, we Believe That Everyone Deserves Support And Help To Rebuild Their Life.
Our adaptability is one of our biggest strengths. Being on the front line, helping the most vulnerable of our society, always brings a new day with new challenges. We have developed our model to enable us to respond and adapt to the needs of our service users, local and wider community, staff members and volunteers. Our model has responded and evolved based on changing needs over 10 years+.
Bringing community back to isolated individuals can help to break down barriers and fear which may have taken hold across many areas of their life. Rebuilding an eco-system in life takes many people, skills and approaches and we recognise and welcome this at all levels of our organisation. We seek to involve the community within our services and integrate our service users back into that community in a harmonious way.
An ever-changing climate on both a social and financial level, as well as a national and local level, needs us to be constantly offering support in the most effective and tailored way. Our service users feeling supported means they build trust, which encourages them to engage further, and further engagement leads to positive outcomes.
We are careful to retain our grassroots origin and treat everyone as respected individuals. There is a big gap between marginalisation and privilege in our society, and we are there to support the underprivileged, particularly when they have fallen through the net. We put the people back at the centre of their lives, to help rebuild identity, stability and opportunity. Treating people with respect on an individual basis allows them to value themselves and their lives.
We seek to educate our service users in life skills which are vital to their success. A core aim is also to educate the wider community on societal marginalisation and provide opportunities for contribution back. This bridges many skills, resources and passions between contributors and service users from the ground up. Through education, long-lasting change can be brought on an individual basis and to the wider community.
