The Sanctuary Model

The Sanctuary® Model is a blueprint for clinical and organisational change which, at its core, promotes safety and recovery from adversity through the active creation of a trauma-informed community. A recognition that trauma is pervasive in the experience of human beings forms the basis for the Sanctuary® Model’s focus, not only on the people who seek services, but equally on the people and systems who provide those services.

Mercy Community is practising the Sanctuary Model within the organisation’s Families & Young People Services stream. Read more about the Sanctuary Model here.
