Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge
Take on an epic challenge that combines breathtaking Yorkshire landscapes, exhilarating hikes, and makes a positive impact to the lives of others? Join us in conquering the Yorkshire Three Peaks in support of Harrogate Homeless Project.
The Yorkshire 3 Peaks is a thrilling journey in the stunning Yorkshire Dales National Park. You will be climbing the iconic peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside, and Ingleborough. It’s an adventure that will push your limits, test your endurance, and leave you with memories to last a lifetime. But here’s the best part: while you’re having the time of your life, you’ll also be making a profound difference for those in need. By raising funds for the Harrogate Homeless Project, you’ll be directly contributing to providing accommodation, support, and a chance for a better future for people experiencing homelessness.
We have two options for taking part, the full 3 climbs, or take on 1 of these iconic Yorkshire Dales climbs. Press the enter button below for more details.
We are encouraging participants of this years walk to raise a minimum £100. A donation of £100 allows HHP to supply a new home starter pack, which provides household essentials, helping someone who has nothing, to make a home when they leave our accommodation.

Real life stories

Emily lost her home through no fault of her own.
She came to us when she was very sad and needed a place to live. Emily stayed in the hostel whilst she used the counselling to talk about her feelings, and over time she got happier and felt better so she could move into one of our flat, which she loved! She decorated it with her things and house plants.
Later she was able to move into her own independent home.
Emily is really happy with her new home and extremely grateful to the staff at Harrogate Homeless Project for the help. She says they always had time to talk with her and share a joke. She doesn’t know where she would be without the help and support.

I am an ex-service man and I had PTSD without realising it for years from my years in the armed forces.
I was holding down a service management job, but I walked away from my job my family and had nowhere else to go so ended up living in the woods.
I spent one week in the woods until I ended up knocking on the Harrogate Homeless Project’s door. The Harrogate Homeless project got medical treatment for me, supported me through my illness and rehomed me.

I have been homeless many times over the years. This has been caused by alcoholism. Alcohol was my coping structure, so whenever I was particularly stressed (e.g. problems at work) I turned to the bottle. The Harrogate Homeless Project helped me a lot by providing access to SAFE (Service to assist Adults Facing Exclusion) who base themselves at Springboard. I now have a home which is a permanent tenancy, my home is my castle. I had nothing to furnish it, so The Harrogate Homeless Project helped me furnish it. They helped me set up my bills; I am in credit now, I have a TV licence! Before doing anything now, I get my bills sorted. The Harrogate Homeless Project helped me access support services to help me realise properly about the addiction.
