Admission Criteria for Emmaus Coventry & Warwickshire
Emmaus Coventry endeavours to provide the opportunity for homeless and other socially disadvantaged people to regain control of their lives by living and working alongside others in a supportive communal environment. Its success depends on creating and maintaining a stable community and therefore before anyone is accepted detailed assessments of need and risk are undertaken. Emmaus Coventry will take applicants who present complex problems provided the community as a whole is able to support them.
The community is fully committed to an equal opportunities policy and will not discriminate on the grounds of gender, marital status, age, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion or belief, political opinion, disability, sexual orientation or past criminal convictions except as stated in our criteria unless it can be shown to be justified.
Companions - homeless or sleeping rough?
If you are interested in joining our Community, please email the Community Leader However, please be aware that we usually have a waiting list, and it might be some weeks before a vacancy arises, so we are rarely able to offer someone a room within days.
We take referrals from homeless agencies, probation services, healthcare professionals - anyone who cares enough to want to help someone improve their life. We are always happy to send out referral packs, show you around or talk on the phone.
These are to help you decide if you would like to apply to live at the Community.
Please contact the Emmaus Coventry and Warwickshire Community Leader on 024 7665 1094 if you would like to know more about how to join the Community as a Companion. Or, If you would prefer to email your query: firstname.lastname@example.org
