Emmaus SLC supports approximately 45 previously homeless people in full time accommodation, with plans to expand further over the next five years.

WE OFFER MORE THAN JUST A BED

At Emmaus SLC we offer formerly homeless people support to get back on their feet. Our residents, who are known as ‘companions’, receive not just a bed, but full time work within the community. Companions can stay for as long as they need, and when they are ready to move on they will receive assistance and guidance to help find accommodation and work. Each companion will receive an en-suite room, food and an allowance when staying with us. At Emmaus SLC we provide the tools to allow those in need to regain control of their lives.

OUR SOCIAL ENTERPRISE

The money generated from our shops all goes into the upkeep of our community, the support of our companions and the running of the charity. Each Emmaus Community is self-sufficient and do not rely on state funding. Our shops provide our companions with voluntary work, to help gain vital experience to get back on their feet. All of the goods for sale are donated by the general public, which includes everything from furniture to electricals, clothes and bric-a-brac. Who knows what you might find!

A FRESH START

We offer companions a place to stay for as long as they need. The support given by our community offers our companions a fresh start, to move on from homelessness.
