To respond appropriately to the needs of the visually impaired people in the Harrogate district and in particular to provide and maintain a centre for social meetings and handicraft training for visually impaired people, entertainments, travel and holiday facilities and recreational health safety or occupational requisites to visually impaired people or their dependants.
Harrogate District Community Transport (Little Red Bus)
The Little Red Bus network plays a major role in the integration and co-ordination of community and public transport in North Yorkshire. We aim to remove the barriers to services presented by non car ownership, reduce social exclusion arising from rural isolation and limited mobility, improve pollution, congestion and parking problems and provide reliable, high quality, sustainable transport solutions.
Harrogate Homeless Project (HHP)
Harrogate Homeless Project Ltd is a Registered Charity, relying on the support of the local community in terms of donations to keep the project running, but also for volunteers, without whom the Project could not survive.
As the only direct access homeless hostel in Harrogate and the surrounding area, Harrogate Homeless Project’s mission is to provide emergency overnight accommodation for single adults and support them in finding permanent and stable accommodation.
HHP aims to treat individuals with dignity, impartiality and respect, meeting the basic physical needs of warmth, shelter and food. Equally importantly, we provide empathy and understanding, in a caring and supportive environment.
