Watch Lone, a film for Emmanuel House Support Centre, from the directors of BBC One’s Soul Boy, Luke Radford and Toby Curson.


We support the most vulnerable citizens in Nottingham without prejudice or judgment in order to tackle isolation, vulnerability and homelessness. We strive to provide diverse and accessible services that meet basic needs and empower individuals to make positive changes in their lives.

In 2019/20 Emmanuel House had a footfall of 23,736 entrances providing support for 1,065 individual people.  This does not include our mental health outreach work or Shelter provision.  During that year we provided 70 hot meals a day and provided basic services such as showers, a laundry facility and access to clean, dry clothes.

The impact of Covid-19 has meant that our usual open access drop-in service has had to move to an appointment basis while many of the people who would have used our services, including the Shelter, are accommodated in a hotel under the Governments ‘Everybody In’ initiative where we have continued to provide up to 150 meals each day and support people into more secure accommodation.  Our outreach mental health service has continued through the pandemic.

Access to Emmanuel House’s services and access to the Nottingham Winter Shelter are FREE. 

Any individual, no matter their economic status, resident status, sexual orientation, gender identity, race or country of origin are able to access the service

With no statutory funding for our core services, we rely on donations from individuals, schools, fundraising and businesses to continue providing much needed support and services to the homeless and vulnerably housed in Nottingham. Find out how to donate quickly here.
