Our Team

KEY is fortunate to have over 100 amazing volunteers working on a rotational basis.

Many of our volunteers are currently taking part in the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme which we wholeheartedly support and encourage younger volunteers to get involved with.

We also work closely with supporters who provide us with funds, storage space, supplies, collection and distribution of items throughout the various sessions at KEY and across York.

In addition we feel very strongly that the general public are part of the KEY team by responding to appeals whenever asked.

Breakfast is served for the homeless guys and girls who have been housed temporarily in a hotel 🥓🌭

Sausages & bacon kindly donated by Morrisons, thank you so very much ❤️

It’s a beautiful morning out there but please, please don’t be tempted to go out unless you absolutely have to. Take advantage of your garden and enjoy the sun whilst saving lives by not going out 👍☀️

Stay safe 🌈❤️

Today one of our amazing volunteers, Jill Moore, made up some baguettes filled with sausages or cheese & ham for changing lives on Walmgate. This was to use up sausages we had from Appleton's Butchers and bread from M&S & CO-OP 😊

We’ve also had our fabulous Lynette Nelson on cooking duty tonight delivering roast gammon or roast beef with fresh veg, gravy and Yorkshire puddings to our homeless guys who are being temporarily housed during this period.

These ladies and many more volunteers & team leaders are why KEY works like it does ❤️

Teamwork is definitely needed in times like these and we have that in abundance not only within KEY but also with Carecent York and Helping other People in Need Group Street Kitchen 😍 Between the 3 groups we are providing a breakfast and an evening meal every single day of the week for those in temporary accommodation 👍 ...

Lovely donation from Abundance York of potatoes freshly picked from the lovely Flo and Hugo’s from Partisan farm.
These will allow us to cook more healthy meals for our homeless guys being currently housed in a local hotel.
