At Emmaus Bradford we’re getting ready to welcome people with experience of homelessness. We can’t wait to offer new skills to our charity beneficiaries who will live with us and learn a multitude of skills through our secondhand charity shop operations at Cross Lane and Bank Street.

Making over your donations

All across the UK, staff, volunteers and companions at Emmaus communities are breathing new life into preloved items. These pieces go on sale to support people who are at risk of homelessness or rough sleeping. Whether it is furniture or fabric from house clearances, drop offs or doorstep collections, we are keen to make the most of what YOU donate to our homelessness charity.


Emmaus Bradford is excited to get more people involved in upcycling techniques by showcasing skills within our local community. Whether that is woodcraft or painting; jewellery-making or textile creation, we want to hear from you! This is why we have launched hashtag #UpcycledEmmaus for you to shout loud and proud about what you’ve done.
