Welcome

Welcome to Emmaus Hull & East Riding

Here in Hull we have built a new home, The Orchard. We have also built a furniture superstore where our companions work. You can help in many ways, either through a cash donation, through donating unwanted items for us to resell or use, or by becoming a volunteer.

Emmaus supports formerly homeless people by giving them a home, meaningful work in a social enterprise and an opportunity to get back on their feet again.

Every penny you spend with us
goes back into the community

and we deliver locally

Winter Provision for Rough Sleepers

From the 1st of October 2018 until the 31st March 2019 Hull City Council and Partners will facilitate cold weather provision. Rough Sleepers can present at the Wilson centre during opening hours for initial assessment to access accommodation.

Emmaus Rough Sleeper Outreach Service are contactable seven days a week from 7:00-22:00. The team offer intensive support to anyone sleeping rough. We will work collaboratively with all partner agencies to ensure rough sleepers are supported through this period.

Dock House will take direct access cases daily from 9pm. The service will provide the contracted 20 beds as well as 2 beds for any hospital discharge cases. Staff at the centre will prioritise individuals by assessing needs based around vulnerability, risk and safety. Temperatures will be checked daily for the following night and in cases whereby the temperature is at freezing or below at any time overnight, if all bed spaces at Dock House are filled, staff will liaise with Hull City Council to provide B & B accommodation.   Dock House have the option to increase emergency beds safely from 20-30 per night should this be required.

Following this service users presenting will have the opportunity to work with staff until 11am each day, this will promote positive progress, signposting etc.

If you have concerns about a rough sleeper anywhere in Hull or the East Riding, you can report it direct to Emmaus rough sleeper outreach team.

Please be careful about approaching people you don’t know. If you feel compelled to help, you can do this via agencies that are trained to deal with the complexities sometimes associated with rough sleeping. We do not advocate giving money.

A rough sleeper recently said to us:

I don’t want coins, I want change.”

"Recently deceased, Max Gold was a community leader and one of Hull’s best known solicitors.
Charming and kind hearted he gifted a huge amount of legal work for free, to those who couldn’t afford to pay.
As an accomplished and persuasive advocate, he used his standing in the community to help and support vulnerable people. His family feel that this help and support combined with his amazing work ethic mirrors Emmaus’ ethos and encourage you to contribute generously in his memory."
