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 Oxford is pleased to announce that it is now an accredited Living Wage Employer. This means that every member of staff in our organisation earns not just the minimum wage but the Living Wage [in fact we pay the Oxford Living Wage which is higher than the National Living Wage]. The Living Wage is an hourly rate set independently and updated annually, based on the cost of living in the UK. We believe that every member of staff deserves a Living Wage.

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 online, it would be very much appreciated.
Stay safe everyone.
