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.
Since the Covid-19 outbreak and the resulting lockdown led us to close our store, Emmaus Oxford has looked to our supporters to help us keep going through these rough times.
We’ve been amazed by the response, and would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has donated recently. We’d like to especially thank The National Lottery Community Fund, Oxfordshire Community Foundation, Thames Valley Police Partnership and each and every individual donor who has given.
We’re using your donations to keep homeless people safe and well and to support other vulnerable people across Oxfordshire. Your support is making a big difference every day.
24 March 2020
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.
