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.

How to apply

We work with local authorities to move residents into our homes. We use the Choice Base Letting (CBL) schemes from each of these local authorities.

If you would like to apply to live in one of our homes, you will need to apply by contacting the local authority. You can search, apply and bid for a property by using the local authorities relevant CBL scheme (these links will open in new windows):

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.
