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.

Lifeline on BBC Look North

Did you see us on BBC Look North Yorkshire this evening and at lunchtime? Thanks to the amazing charity Dentaid, 8 of our residents received essential dental health care this morning, including several teeth being removed. Dentaid come to Harrogate every 6 months and we know for sure this vital work can be life saving! One of our former residents nearly died when he was with us a number of years ago, due to a severe abscess that required emergency treatment at York hospital. Thankfully he made a full recovery 🙏
Thanks to our funders who make these visits possible.

New house for Scott

Such great news this week that we have been able to work with North Yorkshire Council to find Scott a brand new home (Scott pictured outside)! Scott is absolutely delighted and he will now be able to have his cherished dream of his son staying over with him. It's also great that Scott wants to keep in touch with Lifeline and we will keep supporting him to make sure he makes this transition a successful one.
