We know that overcoming homelessness often means more than a roof over your head. That’s why Emmaus supports people to work their way out of homelessness, provides purpose as well as a stable home for as long as someone needs it. In the past 24 years Emmaus Brighton & Hove has provided a unique solution to combatting homelessness to over 1,500 Companions (residents) many of whom have complex needs.
We operate seven separate enterprises:
The Secondhand Superstore
Outfit @ Emmaus
Emporium @ Emmaus
The Greenhouse @ Emmaus
The Bedroom Store @ Emmaus
Revive @ Emmaus
Emmaus by the sea (Southwick satellite shop)
Our social enterprises not only provide a variety of sales channels for our donated
goods and different reasons to visit our site as customers, they also create a
multitude of roles and teams within which Companions can learn different skills –
from catering to retailing, transport to maintenance, pricing to customer service.
Every penny spent at Emmaus goes back into our Community.
We continue to grow, evolve and develop our Community and its social enterprises
despite facing many of the challenges common to the charity sector today. This
shows up in the organisation’s positive spirit and ‘can do’ approach to taking on new
opportunities and improvements, to be the best it can be.
Our impact does not stop at providing home, support and opportunity for
Companions. Our Community helps those in need through acts of Solidarity,
creates rewarding volunteering opportunities, generates employment and
supports a variety local businesses.
