Set up in 1993, Newark Emmaus Trust is a small local charity in Newark-on-Trent providing education courses, support and emergency accommodation to young people at risk of homelessness.
LandAid's £23,616 grant will help to fund the organisation's NET HUB prokect - the renovation of existing accommodation with 11 bed spaces for young people. The ground floor will be reconfigured to create a communal space and kitchen for education and training courses and socialising. Improvements also include provision of an en-suite bed room for sleep-in staff.
Alongside the training courses and when YP are ready, Newark Emmaus Trust will provide access to volunteering opportunities with local partners.
