World Homeless Day 2022 – Emmaus Partnership

helping our community

Today marks World Homeless Day 2022. For the last five years, homelessness has been rising year on year in England. By the end of 2021, over 200,000 homes across Britain were experiencing the worst forms of homelessness.

In January of this year, we were delighted to launch a two-year partnership with the homeless charity Emmaus. We want to be a force for good in the communities we serve, and by partnering with charities like Emmaus, we can reach a greater number of people who need our support the most. Over the next two years, teams across Cadent will work closely with Emmaus and their communities to support those experiencing homelessness through fundraising, volunteering, knowledge sharing and raising awareness of the key issues faced by those experiencing homelessness.
 
We’re also helping Emmaus in other ways such as the recent donation of two new boilers to enable their new Bradford community centre to open, as well as raising funds through the Cadent Foundation which will be used to help with energy efficiency initiatives in Emmaus community buildings, enabling a more sustainable future.
 
Emmaus are dedicating World Homeless Day to focusing on attitudes towards homelessness and highlight how negative stereotypes around homelessness can limit access to support for people who need it. In support of their campaign today, Cadent colleagues will be volunteering at Emmaus Leicestershire and Rutland.
 
If you would like to add your support to Emmaus, donations can be made via their website (https://emmaus.org.uk/)
