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 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)

Inset: One of our former residents Mick pictured with Georgie Good after receiving his Oscar award for New Volunteer of the Year award at the CVS award ceremony at the Old Swan hotel.  As we have supported Mick he was then able to support others by volunteering for Lifeline.

Could you be our next Trustee?

We are specifically looking for finance and HR experience, but any who share our values and mission would be welcome to apply. Trustees may come from a business, educational, charity or other background.  The trustee board meets every 2 months, including an AGM.
Meetings take place locally in Harrogate (usually on a Monday night) but could be attended remotely if necessary. The need to attend other meetings and events will depend on the specific role of each trustee and the particular projects/initiatives underway at any time.
Much of the work of the trustees can take place by phone, email or Zoom call, which enables decisions to be made quickly when necessary and avoids the number of meetings becoming burdensome. The following requirements are essential for anyone taking on the role of a Lifeline Trustee: · Commitment to the Charity and passion for the Lifeline vision · Willingness to devote the necessary time and effort to support and progress needs of the Charity as a whole · Strategic vision · Good, independent judgement · Ability to think creatively · Willingness to speak their mind · Understanding and acceptance of the legal duties, responsibilities and liabilities of a Board member of a Charity which is also a company limited by guarantee · Ability to work effectively as a member of a team.
Under the 2010 Equality Act, schedule 9, there is a genuine occupational requirement for a Lifeline Trustee to be a practising Christian.
We have a Trustee application form which can be found by clicking here: Trustee Opportunity | Christian Jobs
If you have any queries please would you contact the CEO Carl Good on 07801 695105 or email him on
We have a closing date of Friday the 12th of January 2024.

Lunch club 'On Tour'

We had our twice monthly lunch club courtesy of Resurrected Bites cafe at Killinghall Methodist Church today, due to works being done at St George's community centre.
The food was superb! What an amazing venture at these 'pay as you feel' cafes in our area, and thanks to all those who cooked, served us and made us feel welcome, and to Ron the minister 🙏
