It is the aim of all Emmaus Communities to become financially self-sufficient through the hard work of companions, staff and volunteers. Emmaus Bristol is close to covering its everyday running costs, but does rely on the generosity of its supporters to subsidise the balance. We also rely on support from the public and from grant-making bodies and trusts to fund our work.

Read the testimony of the companions themselves to see how much difference a gift can make to a life.
