Homeless charity, Emmaus Sheffield, has been awarded a grant of £22,800 by South Yorkshire Police Authority.
Emmaus provides a home, support, training and work for homeless men and women aged 18 years and over.
The organisation provides a working community with quality, self-contained accommodation, training facilities and a work spaces.
As a social enterprise, it aims to provide meaningful work for beneficiaries and enable the people it supports to eventually become self-supporting.
Among its extremely successful ventures are the acclaimed Emmaus charity shop and furniture store – based at Sipleia Works – a gardening service and a PAT testing service.
Graham Bostock, Emmaus community manager, said: “If you’re homeless, prepared to work hard and want to sort your life out, Emmaus is the place to do it.
“We are extremely grateful to South Yorkshire Police Authority for this fantastic level of support, which really will make a difference to the lives of the people we help and support in so many ways.”
Emmaus Sheffield is based in the historic Sipelia Works on Cadman Street, a former cutlery factory close to the Victoria Quays.
