Why we need your help

We thought how powerful would it be to channel everyone’s efforts – including those of our clients, customers, residents and contractors - towards helping one selected charity partner.  The collective outcome could be immense and make a real difference to our selected partner.

We are delighted to be an official partner to a pioneering charity called Emmaus. We will be working with them to help them move closer towards their aim - ending homelessness.

So why Emmaus?

This fantastic charity is different to others – it doesn’t simply offer one night’s reprieve from being homeless, it offers a long term solution to those needing to rebuild their lives for a wide variety of reasons. It’s not about offering handouts, but is based on the premise that there is always someone worse off than you.

Emmaus supports people who have experienced homelessness by providing them with a home and meaningful work in a community setting. The first Emmaus community opened in 1992 in a couple of barns in a muddy Cambridge field and there are now 29 communities spread across the UK. The charity currently supports around 789 formerly homeless people in the country and has supported a massive 11,500 since its beginnings 25 years ago. Emmaus plan to increase the numbers in their communities to 1,000 places by 2020.  

And we want to help them do it!
