The Emmaus model really stood out to me when I began researching trustee roles. I like what it stands for – solidarity, community and people helping one another to better themselves.
One of the biggest highlights working at Emmaus Cambridge in Joan’s Coffee Shop is the companions.
"I am quite possibly the longest standing and oldest Emmaus companion in the UK. I am 73 and have lived in Emmaus communities for 23 years."
"Emmaus saved me, and it wasn’t until I received their help that I felt like I could carry on living."
