About Sanctuary

Who we are

We are a team of change-makers who believe that every helping hand can improve the life outcomes for the homeless in Gravesend.

Gravesham Sanctuary operates a day centre for those facing homelessness providing a first point of contact, community, clothing, shower and laundry facilities, along with a wide range of support and services including help with paperwork , ID and finance.  When available we are also able to support with temporary overnight accommodation for those finding themselves with nowhere to turn.  We work in partnership with local and national authorities who help support our mission to help battle homelessness in Gravesend.

Whether it is a reassuring conversation, paperwork help or simply the assurance that they are not alone, we make sure that everyone gets support that meets them where they’re at as quickly as possible.
