David’s garden update
Companion David gives us the latest news from our Garden Project.
Our charity provides a home and support to 42 people who have previously been homeless or experienced social exclusion. It is imperative we do all we can to keep them safe and to keep a roof over their heads. The current situation poses a significant risk to us and a donation from you will help us to continue this vital work during the current COVID-19 crisis and beyond.
Emmaus Village Carlton is a homelessness charity based in north Bedfordshire offering active support to formerly homeless people. We provide a real workable alternative to homelessness, offering people a home, as well as meaningful work in our social enterprise.

“It is fantastic to be here. You get an ensuite room, good food, and a staff team always ready to listen and give support. It’s brilliant and you can’t believe your luck.”
