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 received a donation of face masks to keep our venues Covid-secure
Emmaus North East has received a donation of face masks to keep staff, companions and customers safe.
We’re thrilled to have received a very kind donation of 100 face masks from Nad Lab UK and Masqonn. The companies have donated 80 reusable cotton masks and 20 KN95 masks that will be used by our 24 community members, including companions and staff. The KN95 mask filters out a minimum of 95% of particles, so are ideal for our use in our charity shops and the reusable cotton masks are brilliant for everyday wear.
The masks will be a vital piece of equipment to enable us to keep everyone safe.
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.
