What do you want to do today?

Get involved

You can make a real difference by getting involved and helping us shape our services, or scrutinise our performance.  You don’t need to have any experience or take part in every activity - you give as much of your time as you choose and decide what interests you.

Whether you have a few minutes to vote in an online poll, take part in local activities or if you see yourself sitting on our National Resident Scrutiny Panel, we have a range of exciting and engaging options to suit you.

Our purpose

Sanctuary is a housing and care provider. We were set up over 50 years ago to deliver housing and care to those who need it, and that original purpose still guides us today. Throughout our history, acquisitions, mergers and development have enabled Sanctuary to grow into one of the largest not-for-profit housing associations in the UK.

Care services

We manage around 110 care homes under Sanctuary Care. We believe in going beyond basic provision of care to enrich people’s lives – whether those people are the residents of our care homes themselves, their loved ones or our teams.
