Emmaus Burmatofts, Leeds

People at the Edge

Emmaus Communities offer homeless people a home, work and the chance to rebuild their lives in a supportive environment. There are currently 14 Communities around the UK and several more in development. They rely on donations of furniture and household goods from the public. The companions, who reside on the top floor, repair the goods on the lower floor workshops and sell them in the Emmaus shop on the ground floor.
