Cooking up a new look for Emmaus Sheffield kitchen with B&Q grant

IT’S a shiny new look for the kitchen at city homelessness charity Emmaus Sheffield thanks to a grant from DIY and home improvement specialists B&Q.

Emmaus Sheffield is the drug and alcohol free project that provides a home, support and work for formerly homeless people in the city.

Through its Social Enterprise programme it aims to provide meaningful work and enable the people it supports – known as companions - to eventually become self-supporting once more.

And with a £5,000 grant from B&Q, the companions have been able to install a new kitchen, including state of the art stainless steel units.

“Providing three main meals meals for all our companion every day means our kitchen does get a lot of use all year round,” said Emmaus Sheffield Deputy Manager Charley Fedorenko.

“The new stainless steel units are much more suitable for cooking at this level and will make catering much easier.

“The next phase of the renovation programme will be the overhaul of our dining area, creating a much more relaxing and welcoming space for the companions.”
