Emmaus Merseyside Community Project, Seaforth

Emmaus Merseyside Community Project

To help deliver a safe and comfortable place to stay for the homeless, Riverside Care and Support have teamed up with Emmaus Merseyside, the long-standing soup kitchen and champion of the fight to end homelessness.

The scheme is developed by Riverside on behalf of the charity to offer 28 bedsits with en-suites through the Homeless Change Programme. Residents will benefit from having fantastic communal features to enhance their experience.

With an IT suite and meeting room, a gym and a library, there’s plenty going on. Not only are we offering a place to sleep, but we are also offering additional help to improve quality of life. The apartments are kitted out with a modern and contemporary kitchen and all rooms have a luxury e suites.

With two en-suite bedrooms for staff, the project makes it easier for Emmaus Merseyside to provide the much needed springboard for lasting and positive change to the lives of so many homeless people in the area.
