A picture of Neil Hall - Deputy Local Service Manager

Deputy local service manager Neil Hall feels working in the supported housing sector is a real vocation.

Neil is based at Sanctuary Supported Living’s Brighton and Hove Foyer, which provides accommodation and support for young people aged 16 to 25. He has worked there since 2017, and made his way up to management level after starting as a bank project worker.

Neil said: “The work is challenging but so enjoyable. You can see every day the difference you’re making to the lives of the residents.”

Recently, Neil and his team have had the opportunity to get involved in an exciting project, Get on Track, in partnership with the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust.

The initiative saw eight elite athletes work with young residents from around the country, including Brighton, on a series of activity days. The aim was to help them improve their confidence, resilience and self-esteem.

Neil commented: “It was a privilege to be involved in the project.

“The main thing to remember is this might be our place of work, but it’s our residents’ home. In my opinion this is one of the most important jobs that people can do.”
