Get support

There are currently 30 Emmaus communities across the UK supporting more than 850 people to rebuild their lives after experiencing homelessness. An additional three groups are working towards opening communities in their areas.

More than just a bed for the night, Emmaus offers a home, meaningful work and tailored support for as long as it is needed. It offers a sense of community and belonging, offering people the stability they need to make lasting change.
