At Emmaus Mossley, we provide opportunities to people who are homeless and socially disadvantaged.
We don’t just offer a bed for the night, we offer a home for as long as someone needs it, as well as support, training and meaningful work in our social enterprise. We give people an opportunity to regain control of their lives by living and working alongside others in a supportive communal environment.
The Emmaus Mossley community building is situated at Longlands Mill in Tameside. The social enterprise and office space covers the first two floors and our community home is situated above. Each of our companions has their own en-suite bedroom and access to a range of communal facilities including a kitchen, dining room, lounge, garden and gym.
The opportunity to become part of a community and make a contribution to it, plays an important role in restoring self-esteem and helping people to find a way to overcome homelessness in the long term.
Emmaus Mossley provides help to people of all backgrounds, beliefs and gender who are experiencing homelessness. We offer a home, work in a social enterprise and an opportunity to gain skills, confidence and training.
To join our community individuals have to commit to working full-time in our social enterprise but the rewards for doing so are great. We provide education, training and personal development to help people on their journey towards a better future.
We accept enquiries directly from people who a facing homelessness but more often we receive referrals from local organisations, charities and partners. Our success depends on maintaining a stable community so every application is carefully considered and risks assessed. We need to be sure that there is a good match between the individual and the community. We also try to make sure we meet the greatest need first.
Emmaus Mossley is fully committed to equal opportunities and will not discriminate on the grounds of gender, marital status, age, race, skin colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion or belief, political opinion, disability or sexual orientation.

"If I had my way, there’d be an Emmaus in every town in the country. It’s invaluable."
