Emmaus stories

The Emmaus difference

Emmaus Leicestershire & Rutland is a homelessness charity offering active support to formerly homeless people and those at risk of homelessness.

We offer a home as well as meaningful work in our social enterprises; each person has their own room in our accommodation in Hinckley. People can stay as long as they wish and are offered opportunities to acquire skills as well as support when ready to move on.

This is a really tough time for us

COVID-19 Appeal

Our charity provides a home and support to 16 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.

“The support staff are really helpful. They’re always there to listen and they’ll point you in the right direction if they can’t help you themselves.”

John, currently being supported by Emmaus

“When I  first visited the Emporium shop in Hinckley I was amazed at how big it was and how much stuff was in there. I had never really been much of a charity shop shopper but this really blew me away.”

Lyn, Emmaus volunteer
