Details

A Sanctuary Scheme is a multi-agency victim centred initiative which aims to enable households at risk of violence to remain safely in their own homes by installing a ‘Sanctuary’ in the home and through the provision of support to the household.

This guide aims to provide advice to all agencies involved in setting up and delivering a Sanctuary Scheme, and to promote and share good practice.
