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.
