Sanctuary Scheme

Hastings & Rother are working together with the Safer Rother Partnership and the Safer Hastings Partnership to deliver a Sanctuary Scheme.

The scheme is centred around the needs of survivors of domestic abuse and/or hate crime, which enables them to remain in their home and feel safe.

The scheme is free to anyone provided they are eligible.
There are three levels of sanctuary:

1.Sanctuary Basic - includes small alterations e.g. locks, door viewers.
2.Sanctuary Plus -the design of a safe room replacing the door with a half hour fire rated door. The room can be used as a safe haven until emergency services arrive.
3.Sanctuary Premier - includes all the above plus the installation of London or Birmingham bars to the Sanctuary doorframe.
