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.
Emmaus North East has finally got a van for its shop in Low Fell.
The purchase was made possible thank to help the of our supporters, employees at Sainsbury’s Team Valley and a solidarity donation from Emmaus Mossley.
“We’ve had a fantastic response from Sainsbury’s employees since we were named as their joint charity of the year, ” said Emmaus North East Trustee Paul Evans.
“Their fundraising efforts, along with sponsored bag packs at the Team Valley store by our volunteers, trustees and companions from Emmaus Leeds and Emmaus Mossley made a huge contribution,” he said.
We have now reopened our South Shields and Hebburn shops. We will be operating reduced hours 10:00 – 15:30 Monday/ Wednesday/ Friday and Saturday until further notice. Lucie’s Pantry will remain open to members.
Our priority continues to be the wellbeing of our companions, staff, volunteers and local community and we have introduced new measures to ensure that everyone stays safe.
We are really grateful for your support during this uncertain time and we will keep you updated.
