Emmaus Colchester supports people to work their way out of homelessness.
Emmaus Colchester provides a home and meaningful work in a social enterprise for as long as someone needs it.
Emmaus Colchester is a homelessness charity providing more than just a bed for the night to people who have experienced homelessness and social exclusion.
Emmaus Colchester was set up in 1999 by a team of trustees and volunteers who wanted to create an Emmaus community in the town.
Colchester is one of 29 communities spread across the UK, providing a home and support for more than 800 people who are known as companions. The movement continues to grow, with a further five groups working to establish new communities.
With your support we are able to make a real difference to people’s lives.
Following the Government’s announcement this evening, all our stores will close with immediate effect until further notice.
Our community will continue to support formerly homeless people to rebuild their lives, and the wellbeing of our companions, staff, volunteers and local community will always be our priority.
We are really grateful for your support during this uncertain time and we will keep you updated with any further developments.
Stay safe everyone.
