Established in 1993, Newark Emmaus Trust helps local, vulnerable, homeless young people by providing temporary quality accommodation with professional care, support and training. Our aim is not simply to provide a temporary home but to give young people real opportunities in life.
- Relieve, mitigate and prevent poverty, suffering and distress by the provision of social housing
- Relieve hardship or distress for local young people who are in need, homeless or likely to become homeless
- Give local homeless young people a better chance to achieve their full potential
- Reverse the spiral of homelessness
What makes us unique?
The staff at Newark Emmaus Trust work towards the shared goal of independence for our young people. Many staff are qualified to lead sessions in our purpose-built Training Centre known as The Hub. All staff are Enhanced DBS checked professionals and what makes the Staff unique is that they are not only qualified to lead sessions in our Training Centre but they also provide one to one care and support in the Project. This breaks down barriers and enables staff to support our residents on all areas so we really are a holistic service. We have robust safeguarding and whistleblowing procedures to ensure all have a safe place to live.
We have many types of accommodation to meet each resident’s individual needs. This ranges from high-support, shared-accommodation designed to encourage all residents to learn to live together as a group. Individual bedsits for residents who are a bit more independent right through to houses in the community for young mums with babies. All accommodation is fully furnished to a good standard.
Our Training Opportunities
We have an on site Training Centre (The Hub) where we teach AQA units that lead to appropriate qualifications. We also have access to many more opportunities from volunteering at the Canal and Rivers Trust and Southwell Workhouse to volunteering or training courses further afield with organisations such as the Princes Trust. If you have an interest we will support you to research opportunities.
