Emmaus UK’s mission statement is pure and simple. They are working to end homelessness.
Overcoming homelessness doesn’t stop when someone is off the street. Years of being socially excluded, and losing self-esteem is a huge part of the experience, so the charity supports each person work their way out of homelessness, and providing meaningful work, and a stable home for as long as they need it.
Emmaus runs a social enterprise where the people they support can get involved in many different types of work. They run cafes, house clearance businesses, gardening, up-cycling old furniture and much more.
