Emmanuel House Support Centre 

After our recent postponement, our charity skydive took place on Sunday 10th November and it turned out to be a beautiful day and everyone had fun albeit a little scared to start with. The HoldenCopley team raised a whopping £5,729.31 for our chosen charity Emmanual House, helping the homeless and vulnerable within Nottingham.

Emmanuel House Support Centre exists to support homeless, vulnerable or isolated adults in and around Nottingham. All of the services Emmanuel House offers are orientated to preventing homelessness or supporting people out of homelessness into accommodation and settlement. They support the most vulnerable citizens in Nottingham without prejudice or judgment in order to tackle isolation, vulnerability and homelessness. Emmanuel House offer essential survival services such as hot food and drinks, an opportunity to change into clean, dry clothing, shower and laundry facilities as well as support in the following areas: Mental Health, Tenancy and Resettlement, Benefits and Welfare, Training and Workshops and access to the Winter Shelter. Their social activities also encourage interaction and tackle isolation issues, such as the allotment project, Streetwise Opera, Womanuel (our Women’s Group), the walking club and art group.

Their main aim is to help get homeless and vulnerable adults a home of their own.

When deciding which charity to work with, Emmanuel House was an obvious choice for Company name, working within the housing industry makes us very aware of the current issues and the need for the services provided by Emmanuel House is evident.

Steven Holden, said ‘Emmanuel House Support Centre is vitally important for homeless, isolated and vulnerable adults in Nottingham. We are delighted to be able to commit to not only raising money for them but also raising the profile of their work and supporting with hands-on help’.

In order to support Emmanuel House, throughout 2019 Holdencopley will carry out a variety of fundraising activities within the team and with clients. The work they are carrying out for the charity will not only be financially focused as they hope to organise other activities during the year as well as utilising their corporate volunteering days to support with hands-on activities at the support centre.

The money raised throughout the year will help Emmanuel House to continue the excellent level of service and activities they deliver to those accessing the service. Holdencopley are inspired by the prospect of supporting an organisation that offers the people of Nottingham advice, care and support, food and activities when they need it the most.
