About the Project

The Sanctuary is an out of hours service that provides practical and therapeutic, holistic person-centred support to people at risk of mental health crisis in Swansea and Neath / Port Talbot counties.

The service is set in a welcoming and homely environment, with a lounge area, kitchen/dining area, shower and clothes washing facilities. There are also private areas for those who need quiet time and/or 1:2:1 support.

The Sanctuary aim to lessen hospital admissions and reduce the risk of harm for people in their homes. Individuals’ safety and wellbeing will be fully assessed before they return home, with referrals to other services as appropriate.
