Emmaus North Staffs relies heavily on donations of furniture and other reusable household goods to keep our charity shops going – and we can collect larger donations for free in one of our bright green vans.
Your donations directly enable us to support many hundreds of families across Stoke-on-Trent, Newcastle-under-Lyme, and Staffordshire Moorlands every year.
Our flagship charity store in Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent, is the largest charity shop in North Staffordshire. Our Furniture & Home Charity Emporium has a constantly changing stock of furniture for every room of the home as well as bric-a-brac, clothes, appliances, electricals, music, books, and much more. Almost everything we sell is donated to us and we constantly need more donations.
Located on the lower-ground floor of the Potteries Centre (opposite New Look), our Emmaus charity shop specialises in quality second-hand clothing, shoes, books, music, film, bric-a-brac and various items of furniture for the home. We also have a showroom area with brand new beds and white goods at discount prices; customers can browse the models on offer and then place an order for delivery in the local area.
Both shops are open to the general public six days a week, Monday to Saturday.
Working alongside our staff team, we have a massively important volunteer team who we simply could not function without. We have many volunteer roles available within our team, Through our Changing Futures funded role, we have a Volunteer Support Worker 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 this support.

Emmaus North Staffs works to support local people to move away from poverty. We tackle furniture poverty by partnering with housing associations, supplying furniture and white goods to those referred to us who are setting up home, at no cost to the tenants aside from a small delivery fee. We process over 800 referrals for individuals and families every year, supplying several thousand items of furniture.
We do not receive any central government grants or funding 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.
