sanctuary Aus

We aim to create a Sanctuary where our community can be present and grow stronger together.

Our work is based in the vibrant and wonderful city of Canberra, where the community both thrives and struggles. Well designed, early intervention practice today has a remarkable ripple effect on tomorrow’s world. Therefore we are welcoming all to participate in nurturing the diverse opportunities our community presents everyday.

Sanctuary Aus Limited was founded in 2018 and is a not for profit organisation, a registered charity and a public company limited by guarantee.

Sanctuary Aus was founded by two professional therapists with over 35 years experience working with children and families. Our vision grew from our awareness of the importance that community holds to family wellbeing. Sanctuary Aus strives to build a genuine community that a offers safe and healthy connection for Canberra’s families.

Our programs provide holistic services, with a strength-based perspective to support parents and carers to recognise, recover and build on their strengths in raising children.

Sanctuary Aus staff have a wide range of specialist skills and qualifications. The team utilise creative and cognitive therapies, developmental trauma interventions, holistic assessments, skills training and group work to support positive growth for each
family we work with.
