Grant Shapps, mark, Peter BonePicture of the visit of local MP Peter Bone and Shadow Housing Minister Grant Shapps MP to the Sanctuary Project in April 2010.

At this visit we were able to explain the challenge of homelessness in our region and give homeless people past and present the opportunity to present their views and hopefully influence national policy as well as changing hearts and minds on this issue.
