Sanctuary Housing - North

Sanctuary Housing manages more than 12,000 properties in parts of Cheshire, Kingston-upon-Hull, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Staffordshire and Yorkshire.

We have a wide range of homes available to rent or buy and are committed to providing quality homes and excellent services that meet the needs of the local community.

General rented housing provides affordable homes for people on low incomes. Our rented properties are available at lower rents than the open market.

If you would like to apply to live in a Sanctuary Housing home, please call us on 0800 131 3348 or 0300 123 3511. If you’re already a Sanctuary Housing resident or live in one of our homes in a different area of the country, you may be able to transfer.

Change of circumstances

Should your circumstances change, please let us know by filling in the 'Change of Circumstances' section on our online form.

Sanctuary provides high quality schemes which benefit from a scheme manager service, allowing residents to live comfortably, securely and independently.

Residents have their own self-contained accommodation; services include a dedicated scheme manager responsible for the management of the building and communal areas, 24 hour in-house telecare service and a separate 24 hour phone line to report any repairs or raise enquiries.

Shiregreen Garden Competition 2015.

Winners announced

Success blossomed for residents who entered their glorious green spaces into Sanctuary Housing’s Shiregreen Garden Competition 2017.

A special celebratory event held at Hatfield Academy saw £30 worth of gardening vouchers awarded to the competition winners, who were:

Best Individual Garden – Richard Wilson

Best Hanging Baskets – Janusz Michalak

Best School Garden – Hatfield Academy

This competition was funded by Sanctuary Group’s Community Investment Fund, supporting projects which benefit Sanctuary residents and their communities.

How we’ve helped

  • Invested £12,700 which has paid for a new locally designed and updated website, Shiregreen.net, a quarterly newsletter which is delivered to 5,000 homes, the installation of a digital hub and two new community noticeboards.
  • Staff have volunteered 125 hours of their time to help co-edit the newsletter.

Legacy

  • An average of 1,700 hits on Shiregreen.net each month.
  • One-stop shop for calendar of local events with an average of 16 events each day.
  • Formation of Shiregreen Community Forum, an informal sharing network made up of 42 local groups. The forum meets regularly to share ideas and resources, collaborate on funding bids and celebrate community achievements.

Allan Ogle has lived in Shiregreen for more than four years and is a keen badminton player. He and his friends had an idea to organise a badminton marathon to raise money for the NSPCC, promote badminton as a way of staying fit and healthy, inspire the community and break the world record for the longest badminton doubles marathon.

How we’ve helped

  • Contributed £1,800 to help pay for event sponsorship, equipment costs and promotion.
  • Staff volunteered their time to help organise the event and run the ‘community court’.

Legacy

  • More than £5,000 raised for the NSPCC and a new world record achieved.
  • A long-term plan to increase sporting participation through badminton and other sports is now in place.
  • Launch of a new badminton club with dozens of residents taking up the sport.

The 231st Shiregreen scout group has one of the biggest followings of any local group or club. The group approached Sanctuary to help with tackling anti-social behaviour and refurbishing the hut. Together we organised a day of community action using Sanctuary’s regeneration partners for help.
