Emmaus is not about giving hand-outs, and this is not how Gradient support the charity. Our employees will be taking part in activities throughout the year. Yes, of course, to raise money but more importantly to raise awareness of the challenges of living without a home and also to add value to the lives of those living at Emmaus Burnley.
We plan to join Emmaus at this year’s Turf Sleepout, an event aimed at increasing the awareness of the rising epidemic of homelessness in the UK. Gradient intends to offer 1-to-1 support to the companions with advice on personal issues, training and employment after Emmaus. We have also pledged to support Emmaus with a software selection project in order to develop the social enterprise.
