Kristina James has recently stepped into a Team Leader position at YRP and will be overseeing the Night Shelter to ensure it provides first rate support in a safe environment.  

I am the Team Leader for the Night Shelter at York Road Project.  I have a real passion for helping people and believe that everyone has the right to a safe home environment.  I joined York Road Project in January 2017 as a Project Worker at the Night Shelter and immediately wanted to be more involved, I was lucky enough to move into the Day Services as Move On Project Worker - supporting clients who have moved from the Shelter into our longer term accommodation - and now as the Night Shelter Team Leader .

No two days are the same, one day I can be helping clients apply for benefits, jobs or getting to doctors and hospital appointments, the next helping them to paint their room or out in the community helping with some gardening. The best days are when you see clients in a safe, happy environment and proud of what they have achieved, whether that be restoring a piece of furniture to securing longer term accommodation.  It is an extremely rewarding job and the resilience of our clients astounds me.
