sanctuary place about us

OUR PERMANENT CULTURE ETHOS

Sanctuary Place is a social enterprise. It centres and flows around an organic eco-system of community development. Its ethos is permanent culture, which expands to stand for a culture to regenerate and self-maintain quality of life. We believe the heart of the home is in the kitchen, and nurture this through the provision of our add-on Pantry Package and Food and Faith program.

Care for the Earth

Care for Others
