Here at Emmaus Suffolk we understand that homeless people need more than just a hot meal and a bed for the night if they are to rebuild their lives. They need a home, a sense of purpose and the chance to regain their self-respect.

Every night there are estimated to be 4,134 rough sleepers in England. Last year, Emmaus communities were forced to turn away 197 homeless people, and put a further 138 on waiting lists because there simply weren’t enough rooms available.

With your help we can change people’s lives for the better. There are lots of ways to help us, so please do read on to see how you can get involved.
