Selwyn Image is the man responsible for bringing Emmaus to the UK, after a chance encounter at a soup kitchen in Cambridge inspired him to seek out the charity he had encountered in France as a student. Since setting up the first UK Emmaus community in Cambridge in 1992, Selwyn has worked tirelessly to support the expansion of the movement to one with national reach.
