Emmaus communities provide a home and meaningful work for people who have experienced homelessness, helping them to find a way to move on with their lives.
From house clearances to getting involved with the wider community, we offer a wide range of services.
Doing a skydive has been a lifelong dream for Alan, a companion at Emmaus North East, and now he’s finally crossed it off his bucket list!
With his feet firmly back on the ground Alan said:
“I felt exhilarated, but it was terrifying because I kept thinking the canopy might not open. You feel free but it’s hard to describe because you fall so fast. I’d love to do one again and maybe raise money for charity. I’m not sure if the next one would be better or worse…”
Due to the current COVID-19 situation, we have made the decision to temporarily close our retail shops. Lucie’s Pantry will remain open to members for the time being.
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.
