Being a companion

We provide meals, basic clothing, a television, companionship and a weekly allowance of £45.20 plus £10 leaving savings, holiday and travel allowances. In return, we ask you to volunteer five days a week in our second-hand social enterprise. It is through this work that we earn money to run the community and it also helps you to move on to employment.

You will also have to sign off all benefits and live by the community’s rules.

Applying to the community

You can apply to live in our community if you are homeless or just looking to live in a community environment. We can accept people with complex problems provided the community as a whole is able to support them and we also accept people with alcohol or opiate addiction, provided they are ready to address their problems with appropriate support.

Decisions on who is invited to join the community are based on whether we can meet their needs and offer appropriate support, as well as provide a safe environment for the applicant, community and others.

Please be aware that we currently do not have any vacancies in our community. We will continue to update this page when vacancies arise, we apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. We would encourage all applicants to apply to other Emmaus Communities across the UK via the www.emmaus.org.uk/communities
