"I would definitely recommend Emmaus to people who are homeless or sleeping rough on the street. Being at Emmaus has not only got me off the streets but has opened up so many great opportunities for me".
"Joining Emmaus has really opened my eyes to the bigger picture and what I can achieve within it."
"Doing this job has taken me to so many places, some where I never would have been to previously, and the people I meet don’t assume things about me or my past. I feel proud that despite my history they still have trust in me, and that my past is not important or defining. It’s a positive change from 10 years ago.".
"As my Grandad used to say, it always starts where you’re standing, not the first step. The first step is always the second in the adventure."
" I am developing myself, helping others and giving back to the Emmaus community, which is a really great feeling"
Daniel, Former Companion at Emmaus SLC.
“I’m now starting to see a landscape in front of me, whereas a few months ago I could see nothing. As my Grandad used to say, it always starts where you’re standing, not the first step. The first step is always the second in the adventure.”
Claire Malcomson, Liberal Democrat local district councillor for Mole Valley in Surrey.
“I think the active communal aspect of Emmaus is very impressive and is something we should aim for on a larger scale in our local communities.”
Camilla, The Queen Consort
“It’s (Emmaus SLC) an incredible charity, you don’t believe it until you see it.”
