What Placement Managers have said:

Sanctuary staff recently helped local charity, Worcester Snoezelen to produce a professional marketing video, to showcase the work of the charity and their facilities.

"We were absolutely thrilled to see the hard work and dedication the apprentices at Sanctuary Group had put in to making this film for us and the end result was fantastic. The film itself was great and everyone here at Worcester Snoezelen would like to say a massive thank you to those involved in the project."
