  • Health and well-being – to support residents to live happy, healthy and fulfilled lives, with access to the care and support services they need.
  • Community safety and infrastructure – to ensure that communities are safe places to live and are equipped with the infrastructure they need to shape their aims and aspirations.
  • Environment – to make neighbourhoods greener and cleaner places in which to live and to assist residents to live more sustainable lifestyles.
  • Financial inclusion – to ensure that everyone is able to access the basic financial services products that are needed to participate in a modern society.

The main focus of the activity must mainly benefit Sanctuary Housing residents, have a community focus and be open to, and inclusive of, all.
