Emmaus Hampshire’s mission to support people who experience homelessness is delivered within a sustainable environmental model.

Reuse and recycling, along with repair and upcycling, is the focus of our social enterprise activities. We collect and receive donated furniture and household items which are processed and resold within our Emmaus Hampshire charity stores. This activity generates an income to support people at our residential community whilst delivering positive environmental impact.

The founders of our charity also had the foresight to build a community building with many green credentials. Over subsequent years, we have further reduced our negative impact with solar panels and excellent insulation fitted across our buildings.

The recent economic crisis has further highlighted the urgent need to be more efficient with both the items we use and energy we consume. With your ongoing support and through our reuse, repair, upcycling and recycling activities, we are keen to deliver even more environmental benefits.
