The Sanctuary Scheme


The Sanctuary Scheme can help any person who is threatened with or suffering from domestic violence, regardless of whom owns your home.

The free of charge Scheme aims to give people who are suffering from domestic violence, who live in Newark and Sherwood or Bassetlaw District, the option of remaining in their own home if they choose to do so.

The scheme provides additional safety measures to a property: -
 Locks on windows and doors
 Personal attack alarms
 Fire safety equipment
 Anti – arson letterboxes

The scheme is not appropriate when the perpetrator of the violence still lives in the accommodation, however support and guidance will be offered in these circumstances.

The scheme is jointly operated by the following agencies: -
 Newark and Sherwood Homes
 Newark and Sherwood District Council
 Nottinghamshire Police
 Nottinghamshire Womens Aid
 Victim Support
 Bassetlaw District Council
 A1 Housing

If you require further advice or guidance regarding the Sanctuary Scheme please contact the Tenancy & Estates Team on 0845 258 5550 or the Scheme Co-ordinator for Newark and Sherwood on (01636) 655456.
