We do not advocate giving money. If they are rough sleepers, tell us and our team can offer constructive support. Read about the reasons why.
Emmaus Hull & East Riding have delivered a Rough Sleeper Outreach service for Hull City Council and East Riding Council since 2016. Our companions who were formerly homeless have trained to become active Outreach workers, dedicating no less than 40 hours a week to supporting those most vulnerable on the streets of Hull and rural hot spots across the East Riding. Experiencing homelessness themselves drives their unprecedented passion to help those most in need.
- Emmaus house at any one time 30 formerly homeless people at The Orchard. We support all those who live with us to get back into independent living and for some that also includes employment.
- Emmaus develop enterprises with social values and in Hull alone we have opened 3 in the last 18 months.
- Emmaus supports those on the breadline with heavily discounted furniture and items of need. We also in collaboration with other agencies support those vulnerably housed or in need.
- In recent weeks homelessness has become a topic of great debate with many groups, individuals, and media stories all portraying different pictures.
- What we find extremely disappointing and saddening is the derogatory and inaccurate comments on social media made by other groups/individuals about the hard work of others. When this includes the work of our companions we will always stand with them and be a voice that is heard.
- There are enough people and social issues in this city to support in various capacities. Solidarity and supporting those most in need is a fundamental value of Emmaus. A value that underpins our entire organization.
- Be assured there is a vast amount of support and service options across the city for those experiencing homelessness. There are services working everyday day of the year.
- We are open and clear about our role and place in the provision of tackling homelessness.

We work with many agencies, locally and nationally including:
We are the national membership charity for organisations working directly with people who become homeless in England. We work to make services better and campaign for policy change that will help end homelessness.
Humber Help website aims to help co-ordinate information-sharing between all those whose lives are affected by the chaos of homelessness and the wide variety of local organisations that provide services of support to those in need.
In partnership with HullHARP, and supported by Hull City Council, East Riding of Yorkshire Council, and East Riding Voluntary Action Services our mission is to improve the communication of homelessness services and issues on three levels. Read more on our website.
We work directly with thousands of homeless people every year. We provide vital help so that people can rebuild their lives and are supported out of homelessness for good. We offer one to one support, advice and courses for homeless people in 12 areas across England, Scotland and Wales. How we help someone depends on their individual needs and situation. It could be with finding a home and settling in, getting new skills and finding a job, or help with their health and wellbeing. We use research to find out how best to improve our services, but also to find wider solutions to homelessness. Together with homeless people and Crisis supporters, we campaign for the changes needed to end homelessness for good
