We run a fantastic volunteering scheme, recently accredited by Investing in Volunteers.

Let us know if you are able to help us with:

  • Running the kitchen
  • Fundraising
  • Becoming a Trustee

People interested in volunteering with LDHAS should call 01524 842008 in the first instance to arrange a visit to the centre and an informal chat with the manager.

Some ex-clients have also become volunteers.

Some quotes from our volunteers:

"A great place that provides a welcoming atmosphere for everyone

A chance to get more involved in helping out the Lancaster community

A chance to help others less fortunate

Working in a warm friendly environment

A chance to learn about life

We also have a 5/5 Food Hygiene Rating from Lancaster City Council!


We depend heavily on donations to provide support for every single person who comes to us for help. People who visit Edward Street for help receive everything free of charge - including food, clothing, shower and laundry.

Please, if you can spare anything, please consider donating to our charity. We're asking all those fortunate enough to have somewhere to call "home" to give whatever they can spare in this immensely challenging time. Our fundraiser can be reached at development@ldhas.org.uk.
