About The Evening Sanctuary

*Whilst The Evening Sanctuary has continued to provide telephone support to people in crisis throughout lockdown, we are pleased to announce that we will be reopening our doors on Wednesday 8th July for face to face support. We will still open 7 nights a week, but due to health and safety restrictions, for the moment we will be providing a limited service on an appointment only basis. If you are in crisis and feel that you could benefit from our support, please speak to a healthcare professional about being referred to The Evening Sanctuary* 

The Evening Sanctuary is a free evening service providing short-term support to Lambeth residents who are currently experiencing a mental health crisis. We are open 7 nights a week from 6pm – 2am (the below video was made when we were only open 5 nights a week).

We offer a calm, quiet space, people to listen, a hot meal, and gentle activities such as art, yoga, knitting, and board games.

If you are supporting somebody who is unable to cope and needs somewhere to go until they feel better, please complete the referral form in as much detail as possible and email it to; evening.sanctuary@mosaic-clubhouse.org. Please feel free to call us for more information or to discuss a referral on: 0207 924 9657. Find a leaflet about the Evening Sanctuary here. A staff member from the Evening Sanctuary will contact you about the referral during the Sanctuary opening times.

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 Single Point of Access
  • 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.

Having like minded people around

I came to the Sanctuary because I had been very suicidal. I went to my GP they called an ambulance and I went to hospital. When I came out of hospital I was street homeless for a few weeks. I didn’t have proper support. I was scared and very depressed. I was referred to Mosaic and the Sanctuary by my GP.

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.
