For World Homeless Day 2023, Emmaus Hull & East Riding shared four short films to raise awareness of homelessness and the support our charity gives to people in our area.

On 10 October every year, people around the world observe World Homeless Day, while working to prevent and end homelessness and alleviate the suffering of those experiencing it. World Homeless Day aims to raise awareness about the needs of people who experience homelessness and promote work in local communities to alleviate suffering and prevent death. 

For the first film, Stephanie, our new Director, explained more about World Homeless Day, homelessness, Emmaus Hull & East Riding, and the people we support.

For our second film, ITV correspondent Daniel Hewitt highlighted the vital spotlight he is shining on people affected by homelessness in the UK. Click here to see more of Daniel’s powerful investigative reports.

Across East Riding, there are many individuals and organisations working together to help people who become homeless. For our third film, Reverend Richard Hare at Emmanuel Church Bridlington explains more about their outreach sessions.

For our final World Homeless Day film, Sir Terry Waite, President of Emmaus UK, explains more about his involvement in the Emmaus movement and gives thanks to all Emmaus supporters.

Our community would like to thank Stephanie, Daniel, Richard and Terry for sharing these short films with us. Sincere thanks to Casey for coordinating this World Homeless Day activity.
