Who we are

Sanctuary has more than 12,500 employees who make up one team. From the top of our organisation to the frontline, we are united in working together for our mission.

Group Board

Sanctuary has a group structure, in which Sanctuary Housing Association is the legal parent of a number of subsidiary operations within its control.

Sanctuary Housing Association, as a registered provider, is responsible for regulatory compliance.

Sanctuary’s Group Board comprises eight non-executive members, the Group Chief Executive, Craig Moule, and two co-opted members. The Group Board oversees all of the activities undertaken by the organisation: affordable housing, care, development and commercial services.

The Group Board’s primary role is to define and ensure compliance with Sanctuary’s values and objectives. It agrees the strategic direction of the organisation and makes sure that policies and plans are in place to achieve those objectives. It also establishes and oversees a framework of delegation and systems of control.

A summary of declarations of interest of current Group Board members is available on the Group register of declarations of interest page.
