The Emmaus Federation across UK

There are 29 Emmaus communities right around the UK providing a home and meaningful work to previously homeless men and women. The first community was opened in 1991 in Cambridge and Emmaus has since spread nationwide. Emmaus Suffolk is the first of its kind in the federation offering a non residential offer to vulnerable people in the local area.

Local value:

  • Over 80 individuals volunteered with us each year since opening.
  • 31 individuals have moved on into work including 6 employed by the charity.
  • 5 individuals have been supported into housing – 3 from street homelessness.
  • 14 individuals have moved on into further education.
