Welcome to Emmaus North East
We are setting up the first Emmaus community in the North East, providing a home and meaningful employment to formerly homeless people in the area.
We recently started work on a project in South Tyneside and we are also developing another in Gateshead. Both areas have been identified as needing services that will provide a long-term, sustainable route out of homelessness.
We're currently raising money complete work on our new South Tyneside community. Check out the "Get involved" link at the top of the page to find out how you can help.
Our first social enterprise, a charity shop in Low Fell, sells second-hand items to generate money for our community.
Our Low Fell shop
We sell small pieces of furniture, small electrical goods linen, curtains, books, CDs/DVDs, household good, toys, games, handbags, shoes, clothing and bric-a-brac.
