Emmaus stories

The Emmaus difference

Emmaus Leicestershire & Rutland is a homelessness charity offering active support to people who have experienced homelessness and those at risk of homelessness.

We offer a home as well as work opportunities in our social enterprises; each person has their own room in our accommodation in Hinckley. People can stay as long as they wish and are offered the chance to acquire new skills, as well as support to help them move on when they are ready.

More about Emmaus

“The support staff are really helpful. They’re always there to listen and they’ll point you in the right direction if they can’t help you themselves.”

John, currently being supported by Emmaus

“I want to spread the word and let people know about the fantastic work Emmaus does. They’ve changed my life.”

Keith, former Emmaus companion

“When I  first visited the Emporium shop in Hinckley I was amazed at how big it was and how much stuff was in there. I had never really been much of a charity shop shopper but this really blew me away.”

Lyn, Emmaus volunteer
