Rooff are delighted to be supporting Sanctus this year, a charity for the homeless and vulnerable in Chelmsford, Essex. As we are building and developing in the area we felt it a worthy cause to support the front line services that they offer people and families in the region.
Sanctus runs a 7 day a week, 365 days a year cafe operation which provides a free “home cooked” hot meal for anyone who walks in through the door. The cafe is operated by staff and a growing family of volunteers. The cafe also provides a valuable first point of contact for anyone needing help with housing issues, social services, day to day difficulties, mental health and other drug and alcohol addiction support and signposting.
These crucial services are provided by Sanctus staff who work in collaboration with other service partners across the Chelmsford district and are one of the Mayor of Chelmsford’s current chosen charities.
Sanctus are making a real difference in helping people rebuild their lives by moving from homelessness into sustainable housing with a supportive network but are entirely financed by voluntary contributions and charitable funding.
