Sanctuary Housing - South West

Sanctuary Housing manages more than 11,500 homes across 12 counties in the South West.

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.

How to apply

We work with the local authorities across the South West region to provide homes through their Choice Based Letting (CBL) schemes. If you would like to apply to live in one of our homes, you will need to register with the scheme for that area. To find out which CBL scheme is in your area, please call us on 0800 917 0092 or 0300 123 3599, or contact your local authority directly.
