Sanctuary is primarily concerned with helping rough sleepers and those made homeless at short notice with overnight accommodation and especially during the winter months. We support our guest through our day centre in association with other organisations who can provide similar support during the daytime.
Night Shelter (normally between November 2021 – April 2022):
We aim to be open every night between 6:30pm – 7:30am the following day. However during the Pandemic we moved to a 24/7 service which we feel is a preferred way forward providing we have sufficient staff and volunteers.
The shelter provides a safe place to sleep including sleeping bags, showers and a hot meal. Guests must register in advance by calling Sanctuary by phone on 07496 832228.
Day Centre and Admin Office – Longferry Court.
This is where we register our guests and offer support where needed and also refer to other agencies.
The centre is open most days Monday to Friday on certain mornings and afternoons, is fully equipped with toilets, showers and a fully equipped kitchen and has a separate interview room where appointments can be made. Located at Tenants Hall, Longferry Court, Terrace Street, Gravesend Kent DA12 2DF and can be contacted on 01474 328383 to ensure that it is in fact open.
