At Exchange Quay (EQ) in Manchester, Emmaus Salford has been selected as EQ’s chosen Charity Partner this year as part of its Place Activation and community engagement strategy.

Hunter REIM is dedicated to respecting and encouraging the health and wellness of our loyal staff. Our staff are encouraged to attend annual 1:1 sessions where they can discuss their physical and mental wellbeing. The Company also ensures that wellness events are run each year to get all of our staff outdoors – whatever the weather!
All our staff meet weekly in an open forum where they are encouraged to speak about any concerns they might have.
We actively encourage our staff to contribute to their local communities and allow volunteering leave for them to carry out various activities and services, in particular with The National Trust for Scotland.
This year some of our staff will participate in the Edinburgh Kiltwalk on the 15th September 2019 in support of Calums Cabin who provide a holiday cottage on the Isle of Bute for free to sick children’s families by referral from hospitals in both Edinburgh and Glasgow.
And in their own time, our staff have been raising funds for their own chosen charities including a 60 mile bike ride in support of Against Breast Cancer and a 10k run for Kidney Research.
