Sanctuary’s employee volunteering scheme has been supporting volunteer placements for our staff since 2013.

Through the scheme, Sanctuary Group offers our employees the chance to volunteer for up to two days per year in the communities we support, learning new skills in a unique setting. If you are a charity or community group and would like to recruit volunteers to help you with a short-term project, we are looking for employee volunteering partners to help us coordinate opportunities for our staff.

    What Placement Managers have said:

    Sanctuary staff 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.

    Jane Roberts, Worcester Snoezelen’s Chief Officer
