Emmaus Medway Limited

We support people who would otherwise be homeless by offering them accommodation, meaningful daily activity and support. In the main the meaningful daily activity takes the form of volunteering in one of our retail outlets. The support which is person centred supports people with issues such as debt, substance misuse, history of offending and managing mental health issues.
