Worcester charity honoured with supported housing award 

A WORCESTER based charity has been honoured with the supported housing award at the learning disability and autism awards.

The award was presented to Sanctuary Supported Living, during a grand gala dinner at the International Convention Centre (ICC) in Birmingham on the evening of Friday, June 21.

The event, which gathered some of the most dedicated and innovative organisations and people in the field, highlighted the organisations exemplary practices in delivering a variety of housing options.

The charity operates over 650 services across the country, catering to people with disabilities, mental health needs, young people, older people, and those affected by homelessness or domestic violence.

The organisation’s dedication to involving its customers in various decision-making processes was a standout feature that earned them this prestigious accolade.

Sanctuary Supported Living encourages customer involvement through schemes such as Communities of Interest, ‘Experts by Experience’ test visits, resident inspectors, and resident panels.

Dave Shaw, director said: “This award is not just a recognition of our commitment to supported housing, but a testament to our valued customers.

“Their active participation in decision-making processes ensures that they remain at the heart of what we do while holding us accountable for how our services perform.

“The invaluable feedback we receive from our customers helps us continually improve and adapt, and enables us to deliver high-quality services that promote independence, choice, and inclusion to better meet their needs.”
