In 2005 I Became homeless for the first time. When you are homeless, you never really close your eyes. I avoided the towns and tried to keep a low profile. If you had anything of value, you would get jumped. Sometimes you would get jumped just because someone felt like it – they didn’t need a reason. There were times I felt like ending it all, but something always held me back. I managed to find work at Funfairs and at Holiday Camps but the work was seasonal and I wasn’t accomplishing anything long term. A move back to Yorkshire to re connect with family didn’t work out like I imagined so I found myself back in the South sleeping rough once more. There were days I felt like jumping off the end of the Pier, but then I was referred to Emmaus and my life changed. The day I walked into Emmaus was emotional. I didn’t feel judged and I was welcomed by everyone. You just can’t explain the feeling of relief when you don’t have to worry about your next meal or your next hot shower. We have our ups and downs like all families, and that’s what […]
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. Outreach Manager Pierce Dundridge explained that “During our times out on the street we often come across people with health needs and have to find the nearest defibrillator. This can be impossible if we have come across someone in a remote rural area. Having these pieces of equipment in both of our outreach vehicles would give the teams that added piece of mind that if the worst was to […]
The past 3 weeks of my introduction to working as a member of the Emmaus Outreach Team have been a steep learning curve. The amount of knowledge and care the staff have is incredible. My expectations for this role as an outreach worker were very broad. I did not know what to expect. I thought it would involve a ton of walking (which I was right about) but also, I actually expected to find a lot more homeless people on the streets. I attend Jubilee Church in the Hull City Centre and meet lots of new people every Sunday and we work very closely with the homeless, however I have learnt that many of the people who have said they are homeless are in fact in hostels. I expected to be able to quickly solve the homeless crisis in our region, however now I am learning that it is not that simple. Emmaus has always been a charity that has been close to my heart. Being able to sing for the companions and for the Christmas light switch on at the Whitefrigate store was a privilege. These people do incredible work for our city and county. Giving people structure and […]

We’ve been closed for a while, but we are now thrilled to announce that our store on Newland Avenue will be re-launched on Wednesday 22 July. Our team has been working hard behind-the-scenes on a completely new look for the shop, which will reopen with a new name: Emmaus Newland. Our new opening hours are: Monday to Saturday 10am – 3pm. These reduced hours will allow us time to implement a rigorous daily cleaning regime at the end of each day. This stylish store, at 193 Newland Avenue in Hull, is fully stocked with a range of quality pre-loved clothes, as well as a bric-a-brac and small furniture area to browse through. We’re operating a cash-only till at this time. We’re really proud of our new-look store. The makeover was led by local interior designer Rob Fawcett, who also kindly runs upcycling workshops for our companions. Read Rob’s story here.

I Came to Emmaus nearly 5 month ago…completely broken amidst a personal and long lasting nightmare of addiction and mental health complications riddled with all kinds of negativity and mental distress and not knowing myself at all, turning my back on everything and everyone whilst being at a staggeringly low 9 1/2 stone… Nearly 5 months later, I’ve weened off 2 regular medications and am now reaching the same time clean and sober, can work a 40+ hour week again without feeling like a ghost afterwards and NOW weigh just shy of 13 stone!!! I haven’t weighed this much since I was in my teens! 😌! All in all, I finally have a life worth living and some pretty incredible people populating it too. Thank you to everyone who has and continues to be there for me on a daily basis and for being the extraordinary support network I’ve needed in order to succeed! I love you all from the bottom of my soul 👊❤️ Recovery is always possible Recovery is always worth it! 🙏

HullHARP, a local homeless charity has provided funds for an extra member of staff at Emmaus to reduce rough sleeping and homelessness during Covid 19. Director of Emmaus Hull and East Riding, Kelly Finnis said; “Firstly, we’d like to thank HULLHARP for this generous and kind offer. During this global pandemic charities like our own are facing substantial financial loses. This funding will go a long way in making a huge difference. As a city we are dynamic in our approaches to reducing rough sleeping and citywide partners continue to work closely together to deliver a variety of solutions to meet a diverse range of needs. This funded post will work with those in very temporary accommodation in Hull & the East Riding, our existing Outreach teams, and our many partners to collectively secure longer-term solutions. Thank you once again to HULLHARP for coming forward and making this happen” HULLHARP Chair, Sandy Smith said “Our Trustees have been following the work the Outreach Team at Emmaus have been undertaking over recent months. One of the issues we identified was a shortfall in intensive work with those rough sleepers who have been housed through the Council. We believe this is a […]
