Sanctuary Supported Living has worked with Accent Group to secure the purchase of nearly 300 supported housing units.

The deal will see Sanctuary take ownership of 284 supported housing units located largely in the North West, North East, Yorkshire and the Humber.
The portfolio comprises schemes providing varying levels of support to a range of client groups including homeless people, young people, domestic abuse victims, and people with learning disabilities and mental health needs.

Sara Keetley, Operations Director – Sanctuary Supported Living, commented: “We continue to identify opportunities to grow our supported housing portfolio which will allow us to serve more vulnerable people and make a positive difference to their lives.

“We look forward to welcoming our new colleagues into our team.”

Sanctuary Supported Living already owns a portfolio of agency managed supported housing services and a portfolio of its own directly managed homes that support more than 6,500 people across the country every year.

Craig Moule, Sanctuary Group Chief Executive, added: “We believe passionately in the value of supported housing and this acquisition for Sanctuary further underlines our commitment to supporting as many vulnerable people as possible across the country.”
