Who we are

Emmaus Bristol helps people out of homelessness and poverty.

We provide a home, support, training and work experience for up to 30 formerly homeless men and women (known as Companions) in Bristol as well as family homes for those in housing need, and move-on homes.

Moving furniture

Companions volunteer in our social enterprises, gaining work experience and skills to help them into future employment. We have three shops, an online store and a warehouse to collect, sort, upcycle and sell donated pre-loved furniture, clothes and household items. Emmaus Bristol has a business incubator for small businesses, charities and social enterprises.

We are a local charity, serving Bristol and surrounding areas, and are one one of hundreds of Emmaus communities around the world.
