Sanctuary for Yorkshire’s rural homeless during the coronavirus pandemic

June 12th 2020

The Jonas Centre in the Yorkshire Dales, normally the site of family holidays and group get-togethers, has been providing accommodation to homeless people during the Covid-19 pandemic.

At the heart of Wensleydale in the tranquil beauty of the Yorkshire Dales, The Jonas Centre provides twelve Scandinavian lodges with a communal area in the Granary for groups to gather or dine together.  In better times these are ideal for escaping to the country and sightseeing, right now they are providing a refuge for homeless people who have been sleeping under bridges, in cars, tents and graveyards.

The Jonas Centre is temporarily closed from 25th March 2020.

March 25th 2020

It is with a heavy heart that we close the centre for the health, welfare and well-being of our guests, volunteers and staff. Considering the current health concerns surrounding COVID-19 and the government’s public advice on stopping all non-essential contact and travel, it is the only decision.
