We welcome between 70-90 visitors each weekday and 50-70 on weekends. We pride ourselves in providing the basic needs for homeless & vulnerably housed adults in the city; the day centre, the only one of its kind in Nottingham is open 365 days a year and provides additional support services, trained professionals and a core programme of social activities, encouraging positive change and empowerment. Our emphasis is on practicalities as well as offering an environment without judgement for those in need.
Our Winter Shelter runs between the winter months of November to March providing approximately 22 beds per night to rough-sleeping individuals. Emmanuel House manage the Shelter, which is run by a passionate team of staff and volunteers, ensuring the urgent needs of rough sleepers are met as quickly as possible. Individual needs are assessed at Emmanuel House and temporary accommodation is provided in local church halls.
With no statutory funding, we rely on donations from individuals, schools, fundraising and businesses to continue providing much needed support and services to the homeless & vulnerably housed in Nottingham.
