Sanctuary Scheme

This scheme aims to give victims of domestic violence the option to remain in their homes through making physical changes to improve the safety and security of the home.

In Westminster, the Sanctuary Scheme is managed and supported by ADVANCE, an Independent Domestic Violence Advocacy Service.

Who is eligible to apply?

The Sanctuary Scheme is a free scheme available to anyone in Westminster who is affected by domestic abuse.

Referrals are made through ADVANCE who will assess each case to ensure that the Sanctuary scheme is a suitable intervention.
