On Friday 13 October, Andrew and his wife Allison had a tour of our community building, Secondhand Superstore and social enterprise operations. Emmaus Mossley supports formerly homeless people by offering a home, meaningful work in a social enterprise and an opportunity to get back on their feet again.
“I was delighted to visit the Emmaus in Mossley where they’re doing amazing work helping to support homeless people. By the end of my visit I realised that Emmaus was much more than your everyday charity shop but somewhere a person can rebuild their lives. I really hope this social enterprise goes from strength to strength.” Andrew Gwynne, MP for Denton and Reddish and Shadow Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government
Emmaus Mossley supports 26 formerly homeless people by providing them with a home and work in a community setting. The charity runs a social enterprise in Mossley, selling donated and upcycled furniture, household goods, clothes, bric-a-brac and vintage wares.
“It was a pleasure to welcome both Andrew and Allison to Emmaus and to explain more about the work we do to support people out of homelessness. We would like to thank them both for taking the time to speak with our community members and hope to see them again soon.” Alison Hill, Director of Emmaus Mossley
