Make a difference

Emmaus Hampshire is a vibrant and thriving charity that supports people who have experienced homelessness. From our large community home in Winchester, we provide up to 40 people with a home, individual support, training and work experience. The majority of the funds we need to sustain our community are raised through our social enterprise and charity shops in Winchester, Southampton and Eastleigh.

Local volunteers provide help and support in various areas of our community and social enterprise operations. Working together alongside our companions – residents of Emmaus – volunteers play a vital role in the life of our charity and the people we support.

“I worked for fifty-four years as a nurse so helping people became a way of life. Kindness is free, it costs you nothing, and the rewards are great for everyone.”

Sally, Emmaus volunteer

“I chose to be a volunteer at Emmaus because the organisation had a remit, not just to give immediate help to those who found themselves homeless, but more importantly to me, got them back on their feet…”

Andre, Emmaus volunteer

“I volunteer for Emmaus because it is such a worthwhile cause and does brilliant work for the issue of homelessness, which is a shameful situation in this country.”

Jan, Emmaus volunteer

“I feel very passionate about the charity, and think it’s important we give back if we can. I love to bake and it’s something I can do in my own time, as I still work.”
