A new homeless support service has opened in Bury St Edmunds, offering accommodation and personalised healthcare for vulnerable adults who had previously been rough sleeping in the area.

Working in partnership with West Suffolk Council and following extensive building renovation works, Sanctuary Supported Living’s Bury St Edmunds Homeless Supported Housing now provides a modern environment with fully furnished en-suite bedrooms and communal facilities for up to 11 adults.

Lee Glading, Sanctuary Supported Living’s Area Service Manager, said: “Right now, it’s more important than ever to support people who have experienced homelessness. At this service, once people have access to the healthcare they need, our specialist team can support them to move forward and rebuild their lives. We believe that by treating people with dignity and giving them a safe place to live, they will be better enabled to take steps to break the cycle of repeat homelessness and work towards living a fulfilled and independent life.”
