Emmaus South Wales is not like other homelessness charities. We don’t just provide a hot meal, or a bed for the night, instead we offer a home for as long as it is needed, work experience in one of our social enterprises, funded training opportunities and the chance for the formerly homeless people we support to regroup and get back on their feet.

I’ve been at the Emmaus South Wales community since June this year and I really enjoy being here. I carry out a range of different jobs including cooking and working in the shops. I have recently been offered the responsibility of running one of our shops for three days a week. I can’t wait!

If Emmaus hadn’t given me the chance to prove myself, I’m pretty sure I would have ended up dead. Instead, I am developing myself, helping others and giving back to the Emmaus community, which is a really great feeling.
