Kelly Finnis – Director
I am extremely proud to be a part of the Emmaus team. My career for many years has been devoted to developing and delivering services for homeless individuals in the city of Hull. I have a genuine interest and passion around supporting those who access homeless services, those most in need of social inclusion and support. I am very much looking forward to establishing the Emmaus model in Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire which will have a huge impact on homeless provision in the city. If I were to summarise Emmaus in a few words those would be: Inclusiveness, Life Changing and Empowering.
Alex Slater – Operations Manager
I am really excited to be a part of Emmaus Hull & East Riding, I think the model is fantastic, I am really looking forward to driving business forward and ensuring that Emmaus is recognised for its great contribution to local communities and developing skills and enterprise!
Kelly Louise Meacock – Training Leader
Previously I worked in a logistics background and after long thought returned to University to begin a new career helping people. Whilst through University I volunteered for a variety of services which have connected me with beginning a career in helping the homeless. I am passionate about the Emmaus ethos, principles, vision and value and feel privileged to not only be able to work with the companions who reside with us but to be a part of a charity that makes a genuine difference.
Caroline Russell – Community Support Worker
I have worked within homelessness now for 13+ years and am excited about my role with Emmaus as Community Support Worker and working with a fresh new approach to tackling the issues around homelessness.
Its good to be part of a new dynamic team which is building a new community for companions to belong.
It’s refreshing to see our companions’ thriving within the social enterprise aspect of the community but also how as a community they are growing stronger and coming together.
Vanessa Moses- Temporary Community Support Worker
I am really looking forward to working within Emmaus, and hope to help make a difference with the services that the dedicated team at Emmaus provide. I have reached the end of my first week and I have been made very welcome not only by the staff but the companions.
.Mark Stephenson – Logistics Operator
Having worked as a volunteer I was really happy to get the opportunity to have a full time job with Emmaus. I work with a great team of companions and staff and look forward to coming to work every day to make a contribution to a very worthwhile organisation.
Lucie Carroll – Outreach & Community Manager
I am really excited to be joining the team at Emmaus. I have a real passion for helping people and feel privileged for the opportunity to be part of an organisation that makes a real difference in people’s lives and in the community. I am looking forward to getting stuck in with the team, and together transforming lives and giving people hope.
“I am a firm believer in everything Emmaus stands for”
Caroline Nevis – Rough Sleeper Outreach Worker
For the last 17 years I’ve worked in Education and have had the privilege to teach, and support lots of children and young adults who have needed different kinds of support. I moved from Mainstream over to a Special School, where I supported a variety of children and young adults with Autism. Every day had its challenges, but it was also very rewarding. Making a difference in these Children and Young People’s lives was very humbling.
I came to a point in my life where I felt I needed a different Challenge and came across Emmaus in Hull. I’d read how they are helping to reduce homeless around the country, and how they were making a difference, tackling this ever growing problem. I’ve been given a fantastic opportunity to be part of this ever growing community, which makes me feel proud, as I know how worthwhile it is and also plays vital part of the our community.
Jesse Bentley – Rough Sleeper Outreach Worker
I am just starting out at Emmaus as a outreach support worker. It has always been a goal of mine to try to help and make a difference to people who are not as fortunate as the rest of us or in need of a little helping hand to get them to where they want to be. I feel by working at Emmaus, I will have a great opportunity to do so and I am very excited to get started. I can not think of a better company, with better visions, values and motives.
Jade Murphy – Outreach Team Leader
I have previously worked with female offenders and vulnerable women. I have supported individuals with multiple complex support needs such as substance misuse issues, those suffering from mental health distress, homelessness and domestic abuse victims.
I am really looking forward to beginning a new journey with Emmaus and contributing to the genuine difference that they help people to make in their lives!
