A picture of Our Impact - Sanctuary Group’s report is live

Sanctuary Group has published its Our Impact report for 2019/2020, underlining its ongoing dedication to investing in communities and making a positive difference to people’s lives.

Sanctuary has invested £1.3 million in funding, time and resources and has supported hundreds of important initiatives.

The investment has contributed to the delivery of 315 projects, which have all created long-term sustainable change in local communities and achieved key outcomes, including:

  • reduced isolation for over 5,000 people
  • increased employability for more than 600 people
  • boosted confidence of over 490 people to manage their money

Projects like these also attracted £2.1 million in match funding from external partners.

In addition, over £13,000 has been raised through employee fundraising and employee volunteers have given over 1,000 hours of their time.

The report features stories from people who have been significantly empowered by projects running in their community. Many of these projects are showing great resilience throughout difficult times due to Covid-19.  

Sanctuary is now reflecting on the impact the pandemic is having on communities and how it will help shape the Group’s strategic approach to future investment.
