Emmaus supports formerly homeless people by giving them a home, meaningful work in a social enterprise and an opportunity to regain lost self-esteem to help rebuild their lives. There are currently 29 Emmaus communities across the country, supporting more than 800 companions (formerly homeless people) in the UK.
Emmaus communities deliver a significant return on investment. Research shows that for every £1 invested in a community, there is an £11 return, with savings to the benefits bill, health services and a reduction in crime re-offending.
Gradient are proud to be working closely with Emmaus Burnley, one of the 29 communities in the UK. So far we have donated over 170 hours of time which has gone to help Emmaus select a new provider of sales and logistics software. We have also donated office equipment and volunteered for the charity too.
