Support for residents in response to Covid-19

Sanctuary’s Community Investment Fund provides grants for community initiatives which make a difference to the lives of Sanctuary residents.

The fund is currently prioritising projects and community groups that are responding directly to the challenges of Covid-19. We hope that this will enable us to provide flexible and responsive support where it is most needed.

We recognise this is a hugely challenging time for communities and hope that this fund will provide vital support for our residents and the amazing local groups supporting them through the crisis.
