A HOUSING charity in York has been awarded £3,000 by a local landlords group.

Restore, which was started by a group of Christians in York to provide housing for people who would otherwise be homeless, is one of the largest supported housing providers in the city, with rooms for 26 men and women in seven houses.

The donation was given by the York Residential Landlords Association, which represents and offers help and advice, support and training to landlords operating in and around the city of York, and actively promote ‘best practice’ in property management.

It was granted by the RLA to help modify the charity’s seventh house, which has just opened to tenants in Foxwood.

Barrie Stephenson, chairman of Restore, said: “We really appreciate this charitable gesture from York Landlords.

"The organisation takes an active interest in the work we do and matches it in this practical financial way. We are very thankful for their support.”

The charity works with people to help them overcome issues that led them to becoming homeless and employs professionals to provide support for people in the city, but relies on the generosity of the public and supporters. Restore also uses a team of volunteers from local churches work with the tenants and look after the properties.

A spokesman for Restore said the latest donation would be used to bring the latest property up a high standard for the housing organisation.

A donation to a charity is hopefully to bring about a better way of life for the less needy. In this respect the donation by the York RLA shows that it is prepared to help with providing cash to enable the less needy to live in better housing conditions which also helps towards health, employment and living standards.
