Coronavirus FAQ: We need your help

How can you support Emmanuel House during the temporary closure?

Emmanuel House continues to operate remotely to offer support to homeless, vulnerable and isolated adults and also support 40 guests in the Night Shelter. As a result of cancelled fundraising, sporting and entertainment events, along with regular corporate donors unable to support us during this time of uncertainty, Emmanuel House has been presented with a financial challenge. At this time, the support we offer is more important than ever.

Donate to Emmanuel House’s emergency Coronavirus Appeal

If you would like to help, we are asking supporters to donate to our Coronavirus Appeal to enable us to support those in need.

  • £5 will enable us to deliver toiletries and clean clothing to one guest in the Night Shelter for a week.
  • £10 will provide an hour’s support over the phone for a high-risk vulnerable person.
  • £25 will provide 3 meals a day for one guest in the shelter for a week.
  • £50 will provide practical and emotional support for one client for a week.
  • £100 will provide helpline telephone support for homeless, vulnerable and isolated adults for one day.

Please donate to our emergency appeal. Together we can support as many of Nottingham’s homeless, vulnerable and isolated adults as possible. By making a donation, you’ll help Emmanuel House’s support team continue to protect and support some of Nottingham’s most vulnerable people during these unprecedented times. Any donation will make a difference.

To make your donation payment directly to Emmanuel House, this can be done by bank transfer. Please use these bank details. Please then complete the donation form and return to lauren.howatson@emmanuelhouse.org.uk so we can acknowledge your donation.

Donate to local food banks

In response to the guidelines regarding reducing the movement of people and increasing self-isolation, we are not currently able to accept donations of food, clothing or bric-a-brac. We will review this hold on donations in due course and update our website with information when this has resumed.

A lot of clients are accessing food parcels from food banks – if you are able to, donations of non-perishable food to your local food banks would be greatly appreciated.

Whilst we are all facing uncertainty and additional stress from circumstances beyond our control, as a support service for homeless, vulnerable and isolated adults, we continue to support those in need.
