Local : Sanctuary London
The most fundamental need of people affected by poverty is something that most people take for granted - a meaningful place in a healthy community and a sense of belonging. Without it, people in poverty can remain trapped in a lifestyle that is difficult to escape. Rather than simply duplicating social services, Sanctuary provides a unique, healthy community – a safe place, a place to call 'home'. At Sanctuary, the aim is to become a healthy, welcoming community where people who are poor or excluded are particularly valued. This community portrays an expression of the good news embodied in Jesus Christ.
