Project Category: Registered charity
Emmaus Salford is a charity that supports homeless people by providing them with a home, work, training and an opportunity to progress. Our work is centred around a residential community, where people who have experienced homelessness come to make it their home for as long as they need it to be.
People who join our community, known as companions, commit to working to the best of their ability in our social enterprises and with the running of the community itself. Their daily work is an important part of the Emmaus ethos because it gives people a focus each day, an opportunity for personal development, and allows companions to directly contribute to the success of our charity. Whilst at Emmaus Salford, people can access individual support, training and personal development to gain the skills and resilience needed to move forward positively in their lives.
Emmaus Salford is working towards self-sufficiency. The majority of our income is raised via our three Salford charity shops which sell a wide range of donated furniture, household items, electrical items, clothes, books, entertainment and bric-a-brac. Alongside our charity shops we also run Lucie’s Pantry social supermarket and a School Uniform Hub. These two additional social enterprises are run by companions and benefit Salford residents who face financial hardship and may be at risk of homelessness themselves.
