About us
Harrogate Homeless Project is a long established and highly regarded charity which exists to provide emergency shelter, safety and ongoing support to those experiencing homelessness so that they can move towards a life off the streets. What sets us apart is our passionate and committed team whose desire to make a difference has a positive impact on the lives of vulnerable single adults in our community.

As the only direct access hostel in the Harrogate District, we accept referrals from any agency as well as direct referrals from individuals in need of accommodation. Each resident is allocated a designated support worker who works alongside the resident towards achieving appropriate move on accommodation.
Services include:
• Springboard day centre offering hot food, laundry, showers, one to one support, counselling, psychotherapy, skills training, GP and health services.
• No Second Night Out emergency accommodation for those with nowhere to stay.
• 16-bed hostel for clients who are ready for a more structured journey towards life off the streets including mental health and addiction support.
• Move on accommodation for those who are ready to live independently but still need some support.
• SAFE, our Service for Adults Facing Exclusion, provides multi-agency support for people with multiple, complex needs, who have experienced entrenched homelessness and multiple exclusion from mainstream services.
• Streetlight is a flexible and innovative service provided for our clients by our staff psychotherapist. This is a vital element of the services we offer as many of the clients using our services have multiple complex needs and the waiting lists and criteria for mainstream services is a barrier to these people receiving the support they need.
