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.
The Planning Review Committee of Oxford City Council voted unanimously on 26th June 2013 to grant planning permission (with conditions) for Emmaus Oxford’s new-build Secondhand Superstore in Barns Road. This is a hugely important step forward in a process of hard work, discussions and negotiations over a four-year period.
The building process is now expected to begin in March 2014 with the building hopefully completed by early 2015.
The new build, which will become Oxfordshire’s largest charity shop, will have better designed retail space and significantly more space for the processing of donated furniture behind the scenes.

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.
