Emmaus Glasgow is a homelessness charity providing more than just a bed for the night to people who have experienced homelessness and social exclusion.
Emmaus Glasgow is one of 29 communities across the UK supporting more than 815 people, known within Emmaus as companions, by providing a home for as long as needed and meaningful work in a social enterprise. There are also five Emmaus groups currently working to open new communities.
You only have to speak to some of the people we have supported to see what a difference Emmaus can make to the lives of those that have experienced homelessness and social exclusion.
Emmaus Glasgow provides a home and meaningful work for up to 27 formerly homeless people. Our purpose built community offers a comfortable home, while our two shops and warehouse provide meaningful work experience and generate the funds needed to keep our community going.

“It makes me really proud when I manage to add value to the pieces we sell in the shop – the other day I saw something that I rescued from the scrap pile go for £170. That’s money that will help run our community and I am glad to be able to contribute.”
