Emmaus Hull & East Riding has used Volunteers’ Week 2024 (3-10 June) to appeal for new volunteers to get involved.

Emmaus Hull & East Riding provides a home, training, work opportunities and individual support to people who have experienced homelessness. In addition to our residential community in Hull, we also delivers an outreach service, providing direct support to people who are street homeless.

This Volunteers’ Week we’re appealing for new volunteers to get involved either as charity trustees, within our Hull charity shops or in support of our outreach service. As an Emmaus volunteer, you will contribute to our charity’s mission of working together to overcome homelessness and social exclusion.

Stephanie Dixon, Director of Emmaus Hull & East Riding, said: “We would like to say a huge thank you to our current volunteers and trustees for their unwavering support, dedication, and hard work. Their ongoing commitment to our cause has been instrumental in helping us achieve our mission of empowering those who are experiencing homelessness and social exclusion.

“To anyone looking to volunteer for a local charity, we have a range of rewarding volunteer roles suitable for people with different interests and abilities. Volunteering with Emmaus is a great way to use skills and experience for a worthwhile cause, get more active, meet new people and make a positive impact in the community.”

2024 is the 40th anniversary of Volunteers’ Week and Emmaus Hull & East Riding is one of thousands of charities and voluntary organisations celebrating with their supporters. Volunteers’ Week is a chance to recognise, celebrate and thank the UK’s volunteers for all they contribute to local communities, the voluntary sector, and society as a whole.
