A young man with a big heart helps the Sanctuary trust

Sam and his mum Carol visited the Sanctuary trust last week. Sam, aged only 10 years old, was worried about where homeless people can access food and shelter; he wanted to know how he can help out.

We were able to take Sam around the projects before opening times and give him information on how we all work together to find solutions to rough sleeping across the Borough of Rochdale.

Sam even donated a big box full of biscuits and chocolates. Our rough sleeper team had the great privilege of handing these goodies out to our clients; they were very gratefully received.

The sanctuary trust would like to thank Sam and carol for their interest in the work we do.  Sam, you have a big heart and we appreciate all you do to help vulnerable people in our town.

Verse of the Day

Sanctuary Trust works with homelessness and homeless related poverty and emergency homeless issues. God's Sanctuary was the vision of Sheila Halsall after seeing the level of homelessness Rochdale and later the homelessness Conwy and the substance misuse such as Drugs and Alcohol. By Providing emergency shelter for the homeless in supported housing services funded mainly through Supporting People we assist other providers such as Shelter homelessness, Petrus and Stepping Stones who are also supporting people through women's and men's hostels and floating support. We also have STEP Emergency overnight provision. With our work in Wales we partner with Welsh Assembly Government (WAG) as they provide financial help for homeless through emergency shelter and their Supporting People funds. There are different kinds of accommodation available but what is needed is good quality supported accommodation with a strong business and development plan. We have also provided consultancy service to help others move closer to an answer to homelessness. Our social enterprise company, Sanctuary Trust Enterprises runs Noah's Ark Play Centre, The Storehouse Charity Shop.
