The community is supported by social enterprises, including a café at The Orchard and retail space, selling second-hand furniture and goods.

We also have a shop on Newland Avenue, which opened in 2011, selling recycled second-hand goods.

The shop is run by Emmaus Hull companions, giving them a sense of purpose and helping to restore self-esteem, which can be eroded when someone experiences homelessness.
