Emmaus is a homelessness charity with a difference, providing more than just a bed for the night.

Companions, as our residents are known, are offered a home for as long as they need it, as well as meaningful work at our social enterprise – our store in Landbeach where we recycle and sell pre-loved furniture and other household goods, donated by local people. This approach gives companions the opportunity to take stock of their lives, deal with any issues they may face, reconnect with loved ones and rebuild the self-esteem that is often destroyed when they become homeless.

We are always interested in hearing from people who want to use their skills and experience to help a local charity. If you are interested, please contact us on 01223 863 657 or at [email protected].
