Sanctuary Housing
London & South East
About us

In London and the South East, Sanctuary Housing provides quality affordable homes and services to residents within 45 local authority areas across London, Kent and Sussex.


We aim to provide good quality homes that meet the needs of the diverse communities in which we work and we recognise that we are in a position to play a key role in helping to develop successful and sustainable communities.


We work with local partners, including local authorities, schools, and voluntary and community organisations, and support a wide range of community initiatives. These are aimed at addressing employment issues, tackling poverty and deprivation, and that allow individuals to achieve their full potential.


Financial inclusion is a key priority for Sanctuary in London & the South East. We recognise the economic climate is affecting residents and we provide support in a number of ways, through our Welfare Advice Team.


We are also committed to energy efficiency, striving to deliver affordable warmth and sustainable homes designed to help residents save money and reduce the impact on the environment.


Locally based staff provide tailored services designed to meet the needs and expectations of our residents and are committed to involving residents in decision-making processes.


We use feedback from residents to shape services for the future and drive improvement. To find out more about getting involved, please visit our Get involved pages.

Investing in communities

We know that building strong communities is as important as providing a home. Sanctuary works across the country to support local people and agencies to develop the services essential to creating thriving neighbourhoods.


This is why Sanctuary invests over half a million pounds each year in activities and projects which help to support neighbourhoods and enhance the lives of local people.


Our objective is to support the development of successful and sustainable communities in the areas where we operate by:

- investing in the delivery of community-led programmes, projects and facilities which address the needs of our customers.

- working in partnership to develop the capacity of communities to deliver and manage community-led projects.


To find out more about these projects, take a look at the Community investments page on our website and follow the links at the bottom of the page.
