Volunteer with us at our North East community, where we provide accommodation, meaningful work and paid training for up to 15 formerly homeless people.

Shockingly, the number of people homeless in the North East has reached the record high figure of 1061. At Emmaus North East we provide formerly homeless people a home, vital work experience in our social enterprise and education and training to help them to gain employment in the future. We also run a social supermarket; Lucie’s Pantry.  The supermarket provides a sustainable and affordable source of food and household essentials to members of the local community struggling to make ends meet through debt, illness or low income.

We couldn’t do what we do without our fantastic volunteers and offer a number of rewarding voluntary positions within the Emmaus North East community and charity shops. You will be working alongside companions and staff to support the work of Emmaus North East, giving you the opportunity to meet new people and contribute directly to the success of our charity.

Our North East volunteers have held a variety of roles around our community, putting their skills to good use serving customers in our charity shops, helping out in our social supermarket Lucie’s Pantry, or driving vans to collect or deliver furniture to our customers around the North East.

Any time or skills you are able to volunteer with us will help to continue our vital work in helping the homeless in the North East. If you are interested in volunteering with us, please complete our registration form below.
