Lotus Sanctuary is a community interest company founded in 2018 by Gurpaal Judge – now our CEO.
The inspiration behind Lotus Sanctuary CIC was born out of the true story of a woman in Wolverhampton who was homeless and in hospital undergoing a medical detox from alcohol. The dilemma this woman faced was both seemingly simple and heart-breaking. Her only options upon her discharge from hospital were either a women’s refuge, which would only house her once she was six weeks clean and sober, or a male dominated hostel rife with drugs, alcohol and exploitation.
This led us to ask the naïve question, surely there are more services that exist for women in such a situation? The answer in 2018 was no. Thus, the seed was planted for what has become Lotus Sanctuary CIC, a not for profit, supported housing group for vulnerable adults nationwide.
Lotus Sanctuary began with a handful of properties but can now over 2000 units, but we have not stopped there. Recognising the need for an all-encompassing service providing wrap-around support, Lotus now also provides avenues for empowerment and personal development.
