Sponsor a bed

We’re looking for support from the Merseyside community to help provide a bed and personal support services to our new companions – formerly homeless people who will live and work at Emmaus Merseyside. With homelessness on the rise, the need to support homeless people has never been greater.

Emmaus Sponsor a bed

The cost of housing and supporting a companion at Emmaus Merseyside for a year is £5,000. Over the coming years Emmaus Merseyside will be taking on at least one homeless person a month to live and work at our community. We will eventually support up to 28 companions.

We're looking for cash donations from local businesses and individuals for our ‘Sponsor a Bed’ campaign. The donations will help us provide not just the accommodation but all the other training and personal support services which formerly homeless people living at Emmaus Merseyside will need to rebuild their lives and eventually move on to live independently again.

Emmaus Merseyside is able to provide people with the support they need to get back on their feet again. This can include anything from a stable roof over their head, a worthwhile reason for them to get out of bed, a daily routine and training or development opportunities.

If you would like to pledge your support please contact Rob Toomey or Nigel Mellor on 0151 928 1588 or visit the Emmaus Merseyside store at 38 Sandy Road, Seaforth, Bootle L21 3TW.
