Accommodation

We have accommodation services across the North East and in York city centre.

Referral is usually made through your local authority housing team so get in touch with them and asked to be referred to Changing Lives. If you’re unsure whether your referral would be accepted by us, get in touch with our Housing team first – they’ll be happy to answer any queries.
