Supercharge The Sanctuary

WE DID IT!!!!!

Thank you so much to everyone who donated to Supercharge The Sanctuary - follow us on social media to see the progress and come down to The Sanctuary from October to visit the space :)

The Campaign

The Sanctuary provides a space of safety and welcome for thousands of people seeking sanctuary and those working in solidarity with them.

We want everyone to return to this space after the pandemic and find that it is more beautiful and more impactful than before.

The Plan

Using input from over 150 people seeking sanctuary we have completely redesigned the ground floor of the space to be: 

- More welcoming and safe for those seeking sanctuary

- More useful for all of the groups who use the centre

- More beautiful, becoming a beacon of hope in difficult times

- More tailored to the requirements of people seeking sanctuary and those working in solidarity with them

The Ask

The total cost of the work will be £16000.   We have been lucky enough to find funding £10000 from the Brelms Trust and the AB Charitable Trust to get started. 

We have also reached out to businesses in Sheffield to help make this project a reality.  Henry Boot Construction, connected to us through Sheffield Businesses Together,  are our primary supporters - providing a huge amount of building work in the initial stages of the project, with support from their supply chain partners Total Reclaims Demolition and Ceilings & Partitions Ltd.  We have also managed to get help from architects, designers and suppliers to keep our costs down and enable us to provide a space in Sheffield that will strengthen our community for years to come.

We now need to raise an additional £6000 to carry out the development work required to make our vision a reality.
