Lifeline (Harrogate) Ltd
Registered Charity Number: 1150977
Harrogate, North Yorkshire
Lifeline (Harrogate) Limited – known as Lifeline – was formed in 2012. Research into homelessness in Harrogate at the time found that there was a “chronic lack of move-on accommodation in the town” so that clients of the Harrogate Homeless Project were becoming stuck in the hostel.
We saw that there was a real need for people to be settled back in the community but rents are very high in the town, and for people who needed support in order to achieve full independence, but weren’t ready for that quite yet, an intermediate move-on stage was required.
We became aware that we could partner with Green Pastures, a national Christian Charity, and they could buy us houses that we could lease from them long-term. Lifeline launched out the vision and interested and passionate Christians came forward to volunteer, donate, pray and become Trustees etc.
Green Pastures then bought Lifeline its first house in Jan 2013 and we housed 3 people from February 2013. Our second house opened in December 2013, our third house in August 2015, our 4th in 2018 and our most recent 5th house in 2021.
Each house is a 3 bed house. Each resident has their own lockable bed-room and shared lounge, kitchen and bathroom.
As well as providing safe, secure, well-presented and well-maintained properties out in the community, we also provide ongoing support. This is floating support because we don’t live on the premises.
Lifeline has recently broadened the agencies we will work with so we are no longer exclusive to Harrogate Homeless Project. This means we are now dealing with a greater volume of younger people who after difficult upbringings have enormous challenges in terms of housing in the town. They often have complex needs so our ongoing support is crucial.
Since we began housing formerly homeless people we have had 65 people housed. 66% of residents have found paid work whilst residing with Lifeline. We have had residents now stay for over 23,600 nights at 93% occupancy since we started 8 years ago.
