Financing of Sea Sanctuary Sail into Life Placement
Details of the specific tariff costs can found found on the respective referral forms which can be downloaded from the website.
Our service is mainly funded through our fund-raising efforts and in part, the local NHS PCT.
The funding does not however cover our full running costs which include, boat maintenance, repairs, mooring, boat equipment, staff salaries, office rent, travel expenses for volunteers and clients. As a result, it is necessary to charge for accessing our service with the amount depending upon the circumstances of the client. In some cases, we can offer bursaries (the placement will be heavily subsidised) where there is little prospect of a client or a referring party raising funds to pay for the placement.
If we are able to offer such a bursary, we ask that the individual also makes a small contribution to the costs, based on their income. Please be aware that as the number of bursaries are limited and there can be a waiting list for such places.Please contact us for further details.
Community Psychiatric Nurse support
People wishing to use our service who currently have support from a Community Psychiatric Nurse (CPN), may be eligible for funding. This should be discussed with the CPN at referral stage.
Other Support Agencies
We ask that people wishing to use our service who have support from other agencies (for example, support with housing, mental health, addiction, single parents), discuss the possibility of funding assistance from their support agency. We would ask that issues of funding are discussed at the earliest opportunity.

Please remember- Sea Sanctuary is a charity and we always strive to keep our costs to an absolute minimum.
