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.
There are many ways you can support us, from volunteering to donating goods. Your support means that we get to carry on doing what we do best - helping those who need it most.
There is never any one reason why a person can become homeless - each person's story is unique to them. We encourage and support individuals to share their stories to empower others and to show that with the right support, anything can be overcome.
