Emmaus helps the homeless in a unique way as it not only provides them with a home but with the opportunity of work and training also. It gives them a chance to rebuild their lost self-esteem.
At Salford, we are seeking to establish a community as homelessness is an increasing problem in the city. Emmaus Salford believes that it has found the ideal property but we need funds urgently so that a manager can be installed immediately. We shall also need funds to buy/rent a larger shop in the near future and this will be run by a mix of Companions and volunteers. Any excess funds from this venture will be ploughed back into the purchase of the property.
it has been proven from research that where there is an Emmaus community it saves the taxpayer £26,000 per Companion. We are urgently seeking Trustees with experience in Accountancy and management.
