Charity information

Emmaus North East

We're the first Emmaus community in the North East, providing a home and meaningful employment to formerly homeless people in the area. We recently completed work on our residence project in South Tyneside, an area that has been identified as needing services that will provide a long-term, sustainable route out of homelessness.

Our charity shops in Hebburn and Gateshead sell furniture, clothing, household goods, books and CD's.

Founded 2011
