Emmaus North Staffs depends on donations of furniture and other household goods to keep our social business going – and we can collect donations for FREE in one of our green machines. Your donations directly enables us to support many hundreds of families across Stoke-on-Trent, Newcastle-under-Lyme, and Staffordshire Moorlands every year. Your help helps us to help them, so please pass it on.
Emmaus Furniture Mine is the largest furniture and household charity shop in North Staffordshire with over 17,000sqft shop and warehouse over two floors and located on the southern edge of Stoke-on-Trent city centre (also known as Hanley) at Cannon Place, ST1 4QA.
We are open Monday through to Saturday selling a huge range of quality secondhand furniture for every room of the house, bric-a-brac & collectibles, clothes, shoes & handbags, pictures & mirrors, small electricals, vinyl and DVDs.
Working alongside our staff team we have a massively important volunteer team. We have many volunteer roles available within our team, and without exaggeration, as a charity we simply could not function without our volunteers. Through our National Lottery funded role, we have a Volunteer Development Coordinator in post who leads on the promotion of volunteer opportunities, the recruitment, supervision and management of our volunteers, and establishing personal development plans for those volunteers who want the support.

We are much more than just a furniture and household charity shop. Our shop and warehouse is our ‘vehicle’ to implement the change and the impact we want to see in the North Staffs area. It is our way to fund the work we do to support around 1,000 households, both families and individuals, every single year in our local communities. It is our way to ‘spread the word’ about the amazing ethos and beliefs of the Emmaus movement, such as the importance of solidarity, of friendship, of having a unifying social cause that there will be a ‘better tomorrow’, of looking after each other as fellow human beings, of being kind, tolerant, and understanding of each other.
To fund our work, the vast majority of our income comes from our shop and warehouse and from some contracted work. We do not receive any central Government grants or funding to support around 1,000 local households every year and therefore any cash donation, however small, will go a long way to ensuring we can keep this essential work going for many years to come.
Companies are increasingly aware of their community and social responsibilities, and involvement in charity work is becoming a vital part of corporate key aims. There are many ways your company, staff and customers can support Emmaus North Staffs.
