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” “A fair share for all” 

 

To provide comfortable and affordable housing of exceptional quality while being eco-friendly and organic in nature. Sanctuary Place is committed to the best practice service delivery with a genuine sense of warmth, friendliness, pride and community spirit. Sanctuary Place: where focus and  purpose come together to re-establish the lives of  people in a positive and rewarding way.
