St George’s Crypt, success in Leeds
St George’s Crypt has been at the forefront of the provision of wide-ranging support for homeless and disadvantaged people since it was established as a charity in 1930.
We have been working alongside the Trustees and Development Company to fund the development of move on housing for those ready to make the move to independent living with access to opportunities toward employability and sustainability.
The Campaign ‘From A Bench to Independence’ continues to gather momentum with over £5 million now raised from Leeds City Council, the Lockwood Family Foundation, Liz & Terry Bramall Charitable Foundation, Evans Property Group, Garfield Weston Foundation, the Nisa Foundation and many others.
The first of the two developments, the £2 million Regent Lodge, is complete and work is underway on the second development in Headley Chase to create further high quality and self-contained accommodation to help the most vulnerable and marginalised of Leeds.
Congratulations to the whole team at St George’s Crypt on this tremendous success.
