Shelter is a basic human need

Lifeline Harrogate work with homeless people, and those vulnerably housed often having been victims of abuse.  We currently provide supported accommodation to 15 men and 3 women in six 3-bedroom houses within Harrogate. 

We housed our first residents in February 2013 and since then have housed 131 people over 40,000 nights with a 93% occupancy level. 

Our remit is to provide supported housing to those who need significant elements of care, support or supervision so we deal with the more entrenched issues that are acting as barriers to progress. Lifeline is well known in the area and referrals are constant. 

A housing officer from North Yorkshire Council recently said ‘You really do offer a unique service for people. When we visited your houses it was clear how homely you make them and the amount of support that is on offer.”

We are a Christian charity housing people without discrimination or favour. We are continually inspired by the scripture in the book of Isaiah which says: “My people will live in peaceful dwelling places, in secure homes, in undisturbed places of rest” (Isaiah 32:18)

Celebration evening

We've had a wonderful, fun & relaxed time at our first Lifeline Celebration evening, giving out awards and certificates to our residents for their educational & meaningful activities achievements. We're so proud of them all! 

Thanks to all our staff, volunteers and trustees who were able to attend, and helped to make the evening so special.

Lifeline Residents get creative

We're very thankful to Ruth, our admin officer and self-confessed Lego fanatic, who hosted this morning's Lego workshop as part of this week's peer support group.

The main challenge was to create and then race Lego vehicles, with some great results! Everyone really enjoyed the session.
