This World Homeless Day (Saturday 10 October), Emmaus Hull and East Riding is raising awareness and fundraising for two life-saving defibrillators. Hull and West Hessle MP Emma Hardy backs the fundraising campaign and is a long-standing supporter of Emmaus Hull and East Riding. The new equipment will help to provide emergency cardiac intervention to the homeless community in Hull and East Riding. At a cost of £1,000 each, they have set a total fundraising goal of £2,000. Emmaus Hull and East Riding manage a Rough Sleeper Outreach team which is commissioned by Hull City Council and East Riding Council. The service has supported 204 new rough sleepers this year so far (Jan – Sept). The dedicated team are continuing to support rough sleepers through the national COVID pandemic into safe accommodation.

UK Fisheries donate 7000 fillets to feed vulnerable through Coronavirus crisis

A huge donation of delicious frozen fish will help feed people in the Humberside region for months, local charities have said. UK Fisheries, the Hull-based operator of Britain’s distant-waters fishing fleet, has responded to the pressures faced by charities amidst the Coronavirus crisis by donating a total of 1.2 tonnes of frozen cod to food redistribution charity FareShare Hull & Humber and Emmaus Hull and East Riding. The donation of over 7,000 standard 170g fillets[1] was transported free of charge by Yorkshire food wholesaler Turner Price, making this a local team effort which will help to feed hundreds of vulnerable people in the region over the weeks to come.

Former Rough Sleeper Calls for Better Mental Health Support

Hull, UK: A former rough sleeper is celebrating the next chapter in his life having gone from being homeless to independent living in just two years but says mental health awareness remains an issue. Bob Chapman suffered from depression, which had lead to spiralling debt and ultimately him facing life on the streets. Having spent four and half months living rough, including time camped in forests and living off berries, with the help of local homeless charity, Emmaus Hull and East Riding he has been able to transform his life. Now living independently in his own flat in north Hull he is about to take his first steps back in to employment. Former rough sleeper, Mr. Chapman said: “It was about 2000 when my depression first set in. My mum had died just after my birthday and not long after that we found out my dad was terminally ill.“I had a good job in the warehouse at Cranswick Foods but, because my sister had a disabled child, I gave up my job to become a full time carer for my dad. “It was in 2015 that the depression really took hold. I couldn’t take any more bad news so I stopped […]
