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.
A companion and trustee at Emmaus Colchester have taken part in a podcast with Gazette editor Dom Bowers and Essex University student HK Norman. During the latest Colchester Chat podcast they discussed how the charity transforms the lives of those formerly homeless in Colchester.
Companion, John, spoke candidly about his experience of trying to take his own life and how the support of Emmaus Colchester has helped him to turn his life around. While, trustee, Peter Silk, explained the work of the charity.

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.
