Emmaus (pronounced em-MAY-us) is a homelessness charity with a difference. We don’t just give people a bed for the night; we offer a home, meaningful work and a sense of belonging. For many people who have experienced homelessness, losing their self-esteem can be the most damaging part of their experience. Being on your own, with no support around you can be soul destroying, leaving you feeling worthless. Finding your way out of that situation isn’t easy, particularly when the only options available are temporary fixes, offering a bed for the night but little to occupy your days.

Our focus is on tackling both the causes and consequences of poverty by offering:

  • Provision: When people are in crisis we offer food, clothing and furniture. By meeting their basic needs we establish a relationship of trust and open the door of welcome, hope and possibility.
  • Progression: We offer life-skills, training, volunteering, education, mentoring and employment opportunities to help people to increase their resilience and enable them to escape poverty and homelessness – for good.
  • Partnership: We work collaboratively with our beneficiaries, enabling them to contribute to the Mustard Tree Community and work with them to set self-determined goals, as well as working with individuals, agencies, businesses and community groups to broker long-term solutions to the poverty and inequality in our city.

the wellspring

We don’t judge anyone. We are a charity. We are not government funded or a council department. We provide advice and guidance on homelessness situations and circumstances and lots of other topics. All our staff are very knowledgable of the benefits system, housing law, employment, mental health, drugs and alcohol, debt, criminal justice. We sit down with each individual and create a plan of action to take to improve their situation, this could be either a long term or a short term goal. We make sure every potential avenue of gaining housing is explored with each individual and we provide furniture and ongoing tenancy support when we have got someone back in to housing. We find that homelessness can often be prevented or resolved by very simple things. Simple pieces of advice and support, interventions at the right time and giving professional guidance, but most of all, positive engagement with the client group. It is that positive engagement that has created 10,985 positive outcomes. It is very much down to the skills and dedication of the project staff and volunteers to have such positive engagement with vulnerable people in Stockport. The Wellspring is without any doubt a very productive project.
