~ Centrepoint supports more than 9,000 homeless 16-25 year olds a year into a home and a job. We think it’s time to end youth homelessness in the UK. Centrepoint support and make provision for Homeless young people, aged 16-25, who stay with Centrepoint for up to two years, but we keep supporting them for another six months to make sure they can live independently. We provide accommodation, health support and life skills to get them back into education, training and employment. ~ https://centrepoint.org.uk/what-we-do/ ~
~ Emmaus UK (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.
Emmaus is different because it provides a home for as long as someone needs it, in an Emmaus community. This gives people the opportunity to take stock of their lives, deal with any issues they might have, and often re-establish relationships with loved ones.
“Companion” is the name given to those who live in an Emmaus community and work in the social enterprise, where they support themselves and one another.
Emmaus social enterprises generate revenue that pays for companions’ home, food and upkeep, as well as providing a small weekly allowance. This is key to restoring feelings of self-worth, showing these individuals that their actions make a real difference, both to their own life, and the lives of others. ~ https://www.emmaus.org.uk/what_we_do ~
~ Homeless Link are the national membership charity for organisations working directly with people who become homeless in England. We work to make services better and campaign for policy change that will help end homelessness. ~ http://www.homeless.org.uk/about-us ~
