Our social enterprises are an integral part of community life and help us to generate the income that will in time make us self-sustaining. Our research shows that nearly 80% of companions who have lived at Emmaus for a few months say that working and having something to do every day has been most beneficial part of their experience. The main business activity for Emmaus communities is collecting donated furniture and household goods and selling them in our shops.
We offer a range of services, including:
Free collection of unwanted furniture, white goods, electricals and household items
Free collection of books, DVDs, records and other forms of media
Recycling of books, textiles and cardboard
Emmaus COVID-19 Update
Per government advice, our shops in Sittingbourne and Chatham are now closed. Our priority continues to be the wellbeing of our companions, staff, volunteers and local community. We are really grateful for your support during this uncertain time and we will keep you updated. Stay safe everyone.
