We are different to other homelessness services. Our Hinckley-based charity doesn’t just provide a bed for the night; we offer a home, support and work opportunities.

The people we support are known as companions. We accommodate up 16 to companions at our house ‘Elm Lea’ in Hinckley, Leicestershire. Everyone has their own room whilst living in the community, as well as many large communal areas where they can socialise. We provide meals, basic clothing, and toiletries, all within a secure environment with a support team on hand.

Companions actively contribute to daily life here. Companions might help in our charity shop, assist with furniture collections, or contribute to household tasks.

No alcohol or illegal drugs are allowed on the Emmaus premises.

Apply to join us

We take referrals from agencies and individuals, and each one is considered on an individual basis.

Our success depends on maintaining a stable community so every application is carefully considered. Once we receive your referral, if we feel we are able to support you and there is a vacancy, we will offer you a trial place within the community. This will be a chance to see if Emmaus is the right thing for you, and for us to ensure there is a good match between each individual and the community.

Join us by filling out our online Emmaus Application Form.
