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.
Homelessness across the UK has risen dramatically since 2010. The current situation in Oxford reflects this, with various reports highlighting the impact of particular issues, especially scarce, and often expensive, housing.
If you are currently homeless, or at risk of becoming homeless, you can find out more about joining our community here.
We’re members of Oxford Homeless Movement who have a directory of organisations which directly help homeless people here. You can also look at Oxford City Council’s website for resources and advice here.

Following the Government’s announcement yesterday, our charity store will close with immediate effect until further notice.
All collections and deliveries, as well as our House Clearance service are currently suspended. We are unable to receive dropped-off donated goods for resale at this time.
Our eBay and Depop shops are also currently closed but we are looking into the possibility of reopening these in future.
Our community will continue to support formerly homeless people to rebuild their lives, and the wellbeing of our companions, staff, volunteers and local community will always be our priority. We are really grateful for your support during this uncertain time and we will keep you updated.
If you feel able to help us through this period by donating to our Emergency Appeal online, it would be very much appreciated.
Stay safe everyone.
