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 Wi-fi 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. powered by Parkopedia   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.

Many people contact LASSN to ask how we've set up English at Home or Grace Hosting or Befriending. In response to this demand for info, we've put together a page with various documents and links to help other people who are thinking about doing something similar. Click here for more information We're proud to share what we've done, and to explain why we do things in a particular way. All we ask is that if you use anything of ours, you credit us, and share with other people too.
