Emmaus supports people to work their way out of homelessness.
Emmaus provides a home and meaningful work for as long as someone needs it.
It provides meaningful work for our companions but also generates the funding that maintains our community.
Work is an integral part of community life, and the social enterprise side of any Emmaus community helps to generate the income that will ultimately make each of them self-sustaining, something every community is working towards.
Research conducted by Emmaus UK shows that 79% of people who have lived at Emmaus for a few months say that working and having something to do every day has been most beneficial part of their experience.
The main business activity for us is collecting donated furniture and household goods and selling them in our five shops, our house clearance service, and eBay.
