Our Stories

COVID-19 appeal

Our community provides a home and support to people who have previously been homeless or experienced social exclusion. It is imperative we do all we can to keep them safe and to keep a roof over their head.

This situation poses a significant risk to Emmaus Gloucestershire and a donation from you will help us to continue this vital work during the current COVID-19 crisis and beyond.

We know times are tough for everyone at the moment, and we’re all working hard to find a way through this.

Emmaus Gloucestershire is <i>more </i>than just a bed for the night. 
The Emmaus model

Emmaus Gloucestershire is more than just a bed for the night. 

We offer people who have experienced homelessness with a place to call home for as long as they need it and meaningful work in our social enterprise. Living in a stable environment with the opportunity to gain new skills helps our residents to regain any lost self-esteem and confidence so they can get back on their feet.

Our shops are key to the success of our community. Not only does it generate income to maintain our community home of 31, but it gives the people we support with the opportunity to learn new skills and gain valuable work experience.

To support our community, we have shops in Gloucester, Stroud, Cheltenham and Nailsworth all selling quality second-hand items at great prices.
