Emmaus Bradford is a group of people working together to open the first Emmaus community in the city.
We already have a site for our shop, a disused church in the city centre, but we're now raising money to get the shop open so we can work towards opening our community.
Bradford has a significant number of rough-sleepers. Whilst there is some help for homeless people in the area, the Emmaus model goes further in the provision of long term help. It also fits well the Local Authority’s approach of tackling the wider causes of homelessness.
