As you’ve probably seen on our social media, one of the biggest updates at Emmanuel House is the renovation of our toilets and the addition of an accessible shower in our open access area.
The project started at the beginning of July and saw the transformation of the downstairs facilities. Fortunately we were able to continue our service as usual, with no disruption to the open-access area.
The new facilities mean that between 60 and 90 visitors a day now have access to clean and safe toilets that are fit for purpose and more people are able to access the showers.
Alastair Paylor, Centre Manager at Emmanuel House, said ‘the feedback from visitors has been overwhelmingly positive. People are bowled over by the transformation. If you are street homeless you are often forgotten and maginalised in society. The new toilets show those coming to Emmanuel House that you are valued, and worthy of quality facilities.’
We’d like to thank all of the contractors, partners and funders who made this project successful, especially the following:
Nottingham Trent University School of Architecture
Thank you also to all our staff who worked hard to minimise disruption throughout the renovation. The pictures speak for themselves…
