‘The Sanctuary’

Castle Towers Shopping Centre partnered with Women’s Community Shelters (WCS) to support the inception of an ambitious new crisis accommodation project, ‘The Sanctuary’ women’s refuge in Castle Hill, Sydney.

Through the donation of a three year lease, rent-free, for a QIC-owned site in Castle Hill and use of a 6 bedroom property on the land, Castle Towers provided WCS the start required to progress plans for emergency accommodation for women and children in need in Sydney’s north-west suburbs.

Castle Towers also provided WCS with building contractor and project consultant services through the Centre’s contractor, Construction Control, to assist with the full renovation of the property at no charge.

The purpose-built facility provides wheelchair access, access to case workers and specialised child support workers, and a state-of-the-art CCTV system and duress alarm, as well as 24/7 on-site support.
