We are pleased to announce that Emmaus Bradford has secured a pivotal amount of funding that will help us to reach our goal of opening the first community for formerly homeless people in Bradford.

The new community will provide long-term accommodation, individual support, training and meaningful work for approximately 25 individuals in Bradford who have experienced homelessness. The £68,000 funding boost has been provided by Emmaus UK, the national organisation which supports 29 Emmaus communities across the UK.

Alongside plans to set up the new community, we are now recruiting for a General Manager who will play a vital role in the community opening. This diverse role will involve all aspects of business development including fundraising, finance, social enterprise, and opening the community.

Chair of Trustees Rachel De Luca said; “Securing this funding really is a game-changing moment for Emmaus Bradford. We have had the goal of opening a community ever since we formed the charity back in 2011 and now our vision is finally coming together.

“We are also excited to be recruiting for the new role of General Manager as we believe the successful candidate will be essential in the process of opening our new community. We are currently recruiting and encourage managers with an established track record of fundraising and business development to apply via CharityJob.co.uk.”

We currently operate a charity shop in the Plaza Cinema Building on Bradford’s Cross Lane, which is temporarily closed due to lockdown measures. We are also finalising the lease on a second shop in Bradford City Centre which is set to open in 2021.
