Emmaus Bradford is an independent local charity working to reduce homelessness and social exclusion in Bradford. We have two shops in Bradford selling recycled furniture and furnishings at affordable prices. Every item we recycle is a step towards our goal of opening an Emmaus community in Bradford, which will offer a long-term home to local adults who are currently homeless.
