Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

Lotus Sanctuary is a community interest company with the pure and simple intention of housing and empowering vulnerable women suffering a range of complex issues; from rough sleepers to domestic violence victims, sexually exploited women and those seeking to get free from drug and alcohol addictions. We equip our residents with the skills that are vital to leading successful, independent lives. Our houses are small with no more than four residents per property in order to avoid a “hostel” like environment, to ensure individualised support and to aid in the resident’s path to independent living.
Each resident is assigned a dedicated support worker who is tasked with tailoring an empowerment plan, assisting them on their journey with us at Lotus Sanctuary and beyond. Our support thesis is based around a holistic approach which is person centred; offering the residents emotional and practical support to aid the healing process and to solve on-going issues. We walk hand in hand with our residents in developing the skills and confidence needed to lead purposeful, contributing and joyous lives.
We currently have three houses which we have leased on 15 year terms. That gives us the capacity to re house 9 women. As of December the 7th 2018 we have re housed 3 rough sleepers. We have given these women a home as well as support to assist in the path to independent living. The second house is now ready and we plan on immeditaley re housing more women who are desperatley in need. The third house should be ready in the new year.
We need to raise funds in order to best support these women and give more women the chance to find safety from domestic violence, recover from drug and alcohol addictions and escape homelessness. The funds will go to funding the support costs we incur. We aim at breaking the cycles that lead to the problems faced by our residents. We aim at leasing a further 9 houses to really make an impact and need your help to do so. Thank you.
