Sanctuary Scheme

We recognise that some survivors of domestic violence wish to move to another area but that some, due to local connections, want to remain in their own homes.

The Sanctuary Scheme provides professionally installed security measures to help survivors feel safer in their homes.

How does it work?

Security features installed by approved contractors include:

  • Secured doors and windows
  • Locks and grilles
  • A new 'Sanctuary Door'

The Sanctuary Scheme installation works most effectively alongside a non-molestation order and/or occupation order. Advice on such measures can be obtained at Hearthstone, Haringey’s Domestic Violence Advice and Support Centre.

Hearthstone can also provide:

  • A dedicated officer who will co-ordinate each stage of the Sanctuary Scheme from referral to completion
  • Specialist advice and support for all survivors of domestic violence in Haringey

Who can access this scheme?

The scheme is open to all survivors of domestic violence, including council, Housing Association and private tenants but landlord consent is required.
