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 and those marginalised in society, 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. Click here to see when our day centre is open and how you can access support.

Additionally, we have our HMO property, which can provide temporary accommodation for up to six guests. Through our HMO property, we can equip our guests with the necessary tools for them to receive their own tenancy. This is accomplished through our support plans, offering opportunities for guests to receive counselling and access to relevant means of support so that they can get back on their feet and ready to face life head-on. See how our HMO property has made a long-lasting impact by clicking here.

Whether it is a reassuring conversation, administrative support or simply the assurance that they are not alone, we make sure that everyone gets the care they need, meeting people where they’re at as quickly as possible. We work in partnership with local and national authorities and organisations who help support our mission to help battle homelessness in Gravesend.

We are a Christian Organisation

It is through our actions and love for our community that we demonstrate the lifestyle we would like others to adopt.
