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.

Overall Aims

  • To relieve, mitigate and prevent poverty, suffering and distress by the provision of social housing
  • To relieve hardship or distress for local young people who are in need, homeless or likely to become homeless
  • To give local homeless young people a better chance to achieve their full potential
  • To reverse the spiral of homelessness

What makes us unique?

Our Staff

The team at Newark Emmaus Trust works towards the shared goal of independence for our young people. Many of the staff are qualified to lead sessions in our purpose-built Training Centre known as The Hub. All staff are Enhanced DBS checked professionals.  What makes the team unique is that it is not only qualified to lead sessions in our Training Centre but it also provides one-to-one care and support in the project. This breaks down barriers and enables staff to support residents in all areas, it really is a holistic service. There are robust safeguarding and whistleblowing procedures in place to ensure all have a safe place to live.

Our Accommodation

We have many types of accommodation to meet each resident’s individual needs. These range from high-support, shared-accommodation designed to encourage all residents to learn to live together as a group, to individual bedsits for residents who are a bit more independent – right through to houses in the community for young parents 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 have workbooks with certificates of achievement that lead to appropriate accreditations. We also have access to many more opportunities from volunteering at organisations like the Canal and Rivers Trust and Southwell Workhouse, to volunteering or training courses further afield with organisations such as the Prince’s Trust. If you have an interest we will support you to research the opportunities.
