Celebrating 3 years of Luton HARRP

Earlier this month, we celebrated our third anniversary of the opening of Luton HARRP.  The site, opened in August 2019, provides 32 rooms in high quality living facilities alongside tailored support for individuals faced with rough sleeping. Since opening our doors, Luton HARRP has helped to resettle over 600 individuals.

The event, held at the Luton site, was attended by both Keystage team members and those residing at the house, alongside representatives from our partners, including Luton Borough Council, Noah, Resolutions, and Signposts. There was a BBQ staffed by our service users and an awards ceremony which highlighted the terrific and dedicated work undertaken by those working for Keystage. Speeches were also made by some of those living at HARRP who shared their stories about how the service has supported them and what Keystage means to them, and a member of our team made a 5 layered cake to celebrate.

James O’Grady, founder of Keystage Housing attended the event and had this to say: “It is always amazing to see our team members, service users and partners come together to celebrate the hard work and dedication each demonstrates every day to end the revolving door of homelessness. From the team members who ensure that everyone who comes through our doors has the right support for them, at the right time, to the service users who put in so much of their own hard work to get onto a more positive path, and our partners who support us with their collaborative approach to helping those faced with rough sleeping. I have each and everyone involved with Keystage to thank for making the world a better place and ensuring that every day, there is one less person on the streets.”
