We do not advocate giving money. If you find someone who is rough sleeping, tell our team and we can offer advice and our best constructive support.
Emmaus Hull & East Riding have delivered a Rough Sleeper Outreach service for Hull City Council and East Riding Council since 2016. The outreach team provides a service that refers and signposts into many partner agencies, to deliver the best outcome for anyone who is currently rough sleeping. They do this by coming alongside each individual with a caring and positive attitude so that trust is established and the best result is achieved. We have many different people who come and join us for our outreach shifts, such as other services, volunteers (for more information please see our volunteering page) and our companions. 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.
Hull Team Leader
- 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.
