About The Sanctuary

The Sanctuary is a new out of-hours support service in a non-clinical space, targeted at Lambeth residents over 18 years of age who live with a mental health condition.
The Sanctuary is staffed by Mosaic Support Workers, Peer Supporters from Solidarity in a Crisis and Mosaic Clubhouse Members. This support service is part of a range of developments being implemented in Lambeth to provide even more effective support to people in a crisis.

We offer a comfortable and welcoming environment; people to listen; information and signposting service, and a range of snacks and refreshments. Members can access various activities such as exercise classes, art, videos, DVD and music, or relax in our quiet space.

Referrals can only be made by:

  • Psychiatric liaison teams in local A&E departments
  • Lambeth Home Treatment Team
  • Community Mental Health Teams
  • Street Triage
  • The Living Well Network Hub
  • South London & Maudsley NHS Trust 24 hour mental health line
  • GPs

People can be referred up until midnight.
We can arrange transport to the Sanctuary and to take people home if required.

I no longer feel ‘all over the place’

I have been here three weeks. I have found it very beneficial. I was made to feel welcome from the start.  I get emotional support here and a cooked meal, which is important to me as I find shopping and cooking challenging at the moment.
