If you, or someone you know is homeless, or at risk of becoming homeless, then Emmaus South Wales could offer a long-term solution.
The community at Emmaus South Wales offers a safe and supportive environment, helping people to deal with the many issues that cause someone to become homeless, enabling them to regain control of their lives by living and working alongside others.
At Emmaus South Wales everyone has their own room. There is a communal area for eating and socialising. During the day, companions, as our residents are known, work in our social enterprises, which are mainly charity shops. The work is varied and can include working in the shop, sorting donations, organising items in the warehouse, making deliveries, clearing houses, or working in the community home.
Although living in a community is not for everyone, it can offer companionship and support that many people who have experienced homelessness have lost. This can be instrumental in helping someone to stop, take stock, and start to regain a sense of control and stability in their lives.
We do this by offering a home and meaningful work experience. Unlike a hostel, or day centre, we are a community of people who live and work together, supporting ourselves and one another through our social enterprises. Emmaus South Wales is not a religious organisation and we welcome people from all faiths and backgrounds.
