Sanctuary goes beyond constructing new homes, we also fund community projects in the neighbourhoods where we work and draw on commitments from our development partners including manpower, materials and equipment.

The case studies below demonstrate some of the links we have and the range of community projects we help to deliver:

Frating’s War Memorial Hall and Institute received a donation of a life-saving defibrillator and refurbishment of its kitchen. The hall plays a vital role in the local community, including hosting the parish council and giving people a venue for social and recreational events.
