Community Investment

On this page

We know that building strong communities is as important as providing a home. We want to help build resilience and connection with our customers and their communities.

Investing in communities

Sanctuary invests over a million pounds in cash, time and resources each year in activities and projects which help to support neighbourhoods and enhance the lives of local people.

Our objective is to support the development of successful and sustainable communities in the areas where we operate by:

  • Supporting people to create conditions in which they can thrive, increasing their ability to adapt to adversity in a positive way.
  • Supporting people to maintain and build relationships, increasing connection to others, knowing their community, and feeling part of it.
  • Supporting community groups to access funding, advice, peer networks and training to build resilience and connection in their communities.

We recently published a brand new strategy for Community Investment which explains our aims, priorities and how we work with communities.
