COVID-19 appeal

Our community provides a home and support to 23 people who have previously been homeless or experienced social exclusion. It is imperative we do all we can to keep them safe and to keep a roof over their head.

This situation poses a significant risk to Emmaus Norfolk & Waveney and a donation from you will help us to continue this vital work during the current COVID-19 crisis and beyond.

We know times are tough for everyone at the moment, and we’re all working hard to find a way through this.

We are more than just a bed for the night. 

The Emmaus model

For people who were homeless, we offer a place to call home for as long as they need it and the chance to work in our social enterprise. As a result, living in a stable environment with the opportunity to gain new skills helps people to regain any lost self-esteem and confidence, so they can get back on their feet.

Our site is located in Ditchingham on the former site of the All Hallows Community Convent.

Our furniture showrooms are housed in 19th century Gothic red brick buildings. At our site you will find a maze of corridors, archways, windows and staircases worth a visit for the architecture alone.
