As of on 8th & 9th of June 2017 our new address will be
Oak House, 94 Park Lane, Leeds LS3 1EL
(click on the picture or on the postcode to see a map)
We’ll be shutting the office for a couple of days, and then reopening on Monday 12th June.
If you need to contact us urgently during this time, please email us or call our mobiles [link].
Ebor Court is closing completely
We’re very sorry to be leaving after 5 years, but LCCT has decided not to extend our lease beyond August 2017, following a huge (attempted) hike in the rent.
We’ll be sad to leave – after sharing space with 20 something other asylum, educational, legal, religious and social justice organisations.
However, the chance to co-locate with Refugee Council (our new landlord), Leeds City of Sanctuary, and Asylum Matters seems too good an opportunity to miss.
Highlights of Oak House
- Lovely neighbours
- A door on the office
- Fair rent
- A working lift
- Decent loos
- Shared meeting and training spaces
- Air conditioning
- On main bus routes
- Marginally cheaper parking than Ebor Court
- Greater security of tenure – we’ll no longer be on a 3 week notice period
Will LASSN’s telephone number stay the same?
We hope so – we’re still checking this out.
For now, you should assume our number is still 0113 373 1759.
But it definitely won’t connect to us on 8th and 9th June 2017
Parking/how do I get there?
We’re really sorry – we won’t have dedicated parking. City-centre car park spaces start at around £1,600 and this is not something we think we should prioritise.
On the plus side, we should have use of the building car-park next to Oak House on evenings and weekends – which is when most people come to our offices for training or meetings. See below for a map of public car parks.
I use a bus, or a bike
The buses from town are pretty good – Numbers 19, 5 (get off at the Park Lane College stop) and 49, 50 and 50a drop off outside Park Lane College itself.
You can use this planner to plan your journey [link].
There are cycle racks at Oak House, in the car park.
