At Emmaus Village Carlton, formerly homeless people and people at risk of homelessness find a place where they can enjoy companionship and support.

We offer a home

Each person has their own bedroom whilst living in the community –  in fact, with 42 rooms, we’re the biggest homeless accommodation providers in Bedford borough. When a companion wants to move on, he or she will be assisted to find accommodation and work.

We offer work

All companions (residents) work full time and there is work for everyone. Our Home Store and Bistro provide a commercial setting where skills can be learned in a friendly atmosphere.

We offer a new beginning

Emmaus offers homeless people a fresh start in life with the support of the community around them. They can stay as long as they wish and are offered opportunities to acquire skills. When a companion wants to move on, he or she will be assisted to find accommodation and work.
